If you know of a disabled vet who would like a bench or an old bench that would be a candidate for the Benches for Heroes project, contact Ed at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit his Facebook page
This is the new owner of our bench, Chris Roseberry and his fiancee, who live and work at a resort for disabled vets in Rome, ME. Thank you Ed Cutler and family!!

The award also covers other, energy efficient ideas such as:
• The Transpired Solar Air-Collector, a porous “window” panel that directly fan-heats inside space.
The Air to Air Heat Exchanger to bring in freshly heated outside air in exchange for stale air inside.
• The Omega Rail, a strong, light weight, minimally visible overhead rapid pedestrian transfer scheme.
All these examples benefit society and the environment in multiple ways!
