March Meeting! Tuesday March 9th 7pm

Greetings Everyone!!

“You don’t know what you’ve got, until it’s gone”

That phrase sure was on a lot of people’s minds last week during the power-outage. It definitely highlights how much we rely on energy – even when we are not thinking about it. I sure hope everyone’s power has now been restored.

In terms of business, sorry for the late reminder notice – but our next meeting will be tomorrow night at 7pm at the York Library.

On the agenda:

1. What is a watt? A kilowatt? Paul Kittel will give a brief presentation he’s developed that helps clarify commonly misused terms in discussion about Energy.

2. Continue planning for the York Energy, Climate and Sustainability Fair scheduled for May 1st from 9-2pm.

3. Planning and promotion for the showing of “No Impact Man” on Friday, April 23rd at 7pm.

4. Do you know an organization or an individual who might like to sponsor the York Energy and Climate fair? We are trying to raise a total of $2,000 to cover marketing/promotion and reusable grocery bags as give-aways. If you know of someone who might be interested, please let me know.

Also: We are looking for volunteers to help us with the set-up, staffing and breakdown of the fair. Debbie Archambault ( has offered to coordinate the volunteers. Please let her know if/when you are available to help. We are planning on a bigger turnout this year, so we’ll need as many volunteers as we can muster.

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

  • Dear Eric,

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome at the meeting yesterday.

    Please visit our Facebook page while we set up a more formal location.
    Save our 100 acre old Park from being bulldozed.
    Lovingly restore it to 1940-70’s charm as an UN-zoo and ECO Amusement Park.
    Investigate making the park a COOPERATIVE so you or groups may rent or buy a portion of it such as having your school rent the organic cotton candy stand to make money and build character for students..or an animal group to work with sheep in the UN- Zoo..brainstorming encouraged.
