We were pleased to meet Sidney this year. And she is very capable of introducing herself and telling us tales of her life, so far. We met her when we were looking for a solar powered boat and it turned out that she owns one! But this was just the beginning of a very rewarding friendship. Sidney was not only a heavy equipment operator and boiler maker and an active union member but she is also a comedian (she writes her own jokes) and a liberal who was born a Texan!
