Tony will also provide an update on proposed Delaware VACE (Voluntary Assessed Clean Energy) legislation that can bring new financing opportunities to commercial and industrial properties. Roger Campbell, who represents the DESEU primarily in New Castle County, will also be on hand to answer questions about the programs.

CIRC Holiday Party was full of Naughty Fun!
Thanks to Pat Forester, with Photo Sponsor Sonitrol Security of Delaware Valley, and Mrs. Santa's helper, Anthony Santoro, of DiamondState Photography, a lot of Naughty and Nice behaviour was caught on film!
Lots of Nice people brought donations for the Food Bank of Delaware's food pantry, and donated lots of money to our charity, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware.
