Mark your calendar for a unique event coming up in Concord in early February.  It’s Cooler Concord! This exciting event for families is sponsored by Concord’s Sustainable Energy Committee in collaboration with the Schools, the Town and the Light Plant. Hours are 10 am to 4 pm.

It’s all about sharing simple and significant ways to save energy and money.  Students are working hard to put together powerful exhibits on topics such as home energy conservation, reducing use of plastic and more. Adults can talk with local experts and businesses about what to do and how to do it. The town will be prepared with strong financial incentives to make it easy to move forward. There will be a fun Kids Activities area for everything energy-related from sports to arts and crafts. Then take a music-filled ride on a new electric school bus!  It’s reported there will be prizes and refreshments available, too.

And if all this isn’t enough to make the Fair a “must do,” the Concord elementary schools will be able to win $1,000 each if a good number of their parents come and choose some actions to save energy.

Priscilla will be helping to man the landscape booth from 10 am to 4 pm. Come say hello and pick up points throughout the fair if you commit to specific actions to save energy at home. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to to let the organizers know.
