This Saturday, March 26th from 8:30 to 9:30 PM is Earth Hour. Join us in turning off your lights.
Individuals, business, organizations and municipalities are turning off their lights around the world to show support for environmentally sustainable action.

Lights are turned off at 8:30 PM local time, so the event rolls around the world the same way New Years Eve does.
Earth Hour is the world’s largest global climate change initiative. In 2010, over 50 million people in 128 countries and territories around the world participated. This year a record 131 countries and territories are registered to participate.
Last year we tried to shut off everything we could, and even unplugged our laptops to see how low we could get our electric usage during that hour. This year we have reached out to our church and our city to encourage participation and raise awareness among people that might not otherwise be aware of Earth Hour.
Buildings and municipalities are asked to show support by turning of interior lights and any exterior, decorative or architectural lights.
