CRES 4th graders’ PSAs, “No Impact Man”, and “Awakening the Dreamer”

Greetings Everyone!!

I wanted to fill people in on a couple exciting updates:

1. Paul McGowan will be presenting a fascinating seminar called, “Awakening the Dreamer” at Bob and Jackie Brisebois’ house this Friday night.

The seminar is focused on the ecology of the earth, social justice and spiritual fulfillment. It is designed around a series of very powerful videos, reflection and conversations.

Bob and Jackie would like to invite people to their house for this seminar on Friday, February 12th from 5:00 to 9:30. Food and drink will be provided.

If you would like to know more about the seminar go to and click on the symposium. There is a great video that gives an overview.

If you are interested, you can contact Bob at bob0326 [at]

2. YEEC will be hosting the film, “No Impact Man” at the York Library on Friday, April 23rd at 7pm. The film will be used as a way of generating some advance “buzz” for the fair on May 1st.

3. I spoke to the 4th graders at Coastal Ridge Elementary School this afternoon. The students have been studying renewable energy and have put together a series of 30 second PSAs highlighting different renewable energy technologies. The videos are extremely cute – and I’m working with their teachers and parents to get permission to show them during the fair.

That’s all for now – hope all is well!
