Earth Hour in Batavia, Illinois

We are frequently asked to give up something to protect the environment.  Or at least, that's the way it seems. Earth Hour is a special way for many of us to stop, take a deep breath, and just enjoy ourselves, family, and friends.  Yes, some new ways to celebrate is in order, and Batavia knows how to do it. 

Batavia's Earth Hour is this Saturday, March 28.  For details, see http://www.cityofbatavia.net/Content/templates/?a=3202

March 21 Program at Glen Ellyn Public Library

The Glen Ellyn Cool Cities Coalition is sponsoring an informative public program on residential energy conservation. The program will feature a panel of local experts sharing their knowledge about home energy audits, improving heating and air conditioning, and personal experiences at reducing energy waste. Homeowners who desire greater comfort and energy savings throughout the seasons are invited. We look forward to hearing input and questions from the audience in a relaxed and informal setting. Featured presenters include Paul Isaac of Forward Energy, and Micah Schoenherr of DMM Comfort. We will also share information about local “green” groups in Glen Ellyn.

The program will be held at the Glen Ellyn Public Library, 400 Duane Street, at 7:00 PM, Monday, March 21, 2011. Light refreshments will be served.
