The Treehugger’s Ball (text courtesy of Dave Norris’ site)

We are excited to announce that the Living Education Center for Ecology and the Arts (LEC) and Alliance for Community Choice in Transportation (ACCT) are teaming up to host the 1st Annual TREEHUGGERS BALL, a party to celebrate community, environmental awareness, meaningful education and alternative transportation.  Mark your calendars now!  The Treehuggers Ball will take place on Saturday, March 11, 2006 from 7-11pm, in the Old Michie Building-609 E. Market St. (the old Live Arts space).  This glittering event will include performances by two locally-famous bands, delicious food and drink, interactive festivities for party-goers young and old, and a silent auction.  You can dress up or dress down but be prepared to dance!!  The event is designed to raise funds and draw attention to the work of LEC and ACCT.  Tickets may be purchased at the door and cost $8 for adults and $5 for students.  For more information, contact: Alia Anderson, 295-6554 or Ernie Reed, 971-1647.”

Solar how water system presentation

Solar hot water systems are an efficient, economical and elegant way to heat water for home, commercial and industrial use.  Come learn more about their history, design and applications at the Charlottesville Community Design Center on Saturday, March 11 from 10:00 to 11:30 am. Local experts Roger Voisinet and David Watkins, owners of the area’s largest solar firm in the 1980’s: Virginia Solar Contracting Services, will give a presentation on the basics of how solar hot water systems work, how they are designed and installed, and how much money they can save on water heating costs.

I can’t pinpoint the time that 1) I knew about things such as the Treehugger’s Ball or 2) when I started to care. All I know is that if I weren’t showing property all day tomorrow and Sunday, I’d have good things to do this weekend.

Change has to start somewhere. Why not here?
