As you may already be aware, calls to public health agencies regarding bats and potential exposures to bats, are on the rise at this time of year. This is because attics are the place in a house where bats usually choose to roost and raise their young. During the summer days, an attic can become too warm for the bats, forcing them into people’s living quarters as they search for cooler places to roost. In addition, baby bats born earlier in the summer are getting old enough to start exploring on their own. Inexperienced young bats may fly down a chimney, through an open window, or down attic stairs. This may place them in proximity to, or even in direct contact with, people. Please see the attachment for some reminders about handling exposures to bats.

As of August 4, 2014 Joe’s Exchange has swapped 1520 LED bulbs for
incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent bulbs. 70% of the swapped
bulbs have been incandescent. Avalon and the Cuttyhunk Fishing Club required
approximately 250 bulbs between them. Aside from the two inns, the 84 other
locations we have visited have exchanged about 15 bulbs apiece. Joe’s
Exchange still has a list of 40 locations yet to participate. If
Cuttyhunkers do not come to Joe’s Exchange someone from our operation will
visit you, or try to catch you on the road in an effort to promote the
swaps. Over 1000 of the exchanged bulbs have already been recycled to New
Hampshire for use at Harbor Homes, a non-profit catering to disabled
veterans, the chronic homeless, and the indigent.
Joe’s Exchange would like to send a special thank you salute to Alex Barden
who took the time to educate me and others as to why it is important for
Cuttyhunk to swap out compact fluorescent bulbs as well as incandescents and
halogens. Alex personally visited many houses and exchanged hundreds of
Joe’s Exchange is hopeful that its goal of reducing Cuttyhunk’s fuel usage
by 10%, or about $23,000 a year is within sight. Thank you to everyone who
has participated in the exchange. Ann and I look forward to reaching out to
those still on our list.
