Home Energy Expo

I received the following email and flyer this morning. I plan to attend and hope to see you there.
The Abingdon Transitions Energy Working Group, in cooperation with People Incorporated  and others, is sponsoring a Community Home Energy Expo at the Abingdon Sr. Center on Saturday, November 6th, from 10 am to 4 pm. We were hoping that each of you would print a few copies of the attached flier and post it at your church and/or at some locations near you where it will catch people’s eyes.

The goal of the Expo is to help our neighbors save money on their utility bills by making their home more efficient.  There will be demonstrations and speakers supporting that purpose.  But we need help to get the word out about this event. We also plan to have available information about Transition and climate change. This event is free to everyone, and we’re hoping for a large turn-out.

Your help publicizing the Expo is greatly appreciated, and we hope you will join us on November 6th.
