T-Minus 8 Days & Counting

What:  Earth Hour 2010

When:  Next Saturday, March 27th, 2010 from 8:30 to 9:30 pm

Where:  A House Near You...with the light OUT!

Why:  To make a stand and take action for planet with this one-hour, world-wide lights-out event.

What you can do:  Last year, we had a great school-wide Earth Hour event in the dark & candlelight where many students joined us for fun, food, and games on Eagle Cove’s campus.  This year, in the wake of our February fire and reconstruction, we won't be having a school event, but that doesn't stop us from encouraging our families and friends both near and far to join us in spirits at our own, individual homes! 

Our Challenge to You:  Get something started in your own house with your family, with your friends, or your neighborhood.  Ceremoniously take part in Earth Hour 2010 by turning out your lights together, as a family or as a community.

Ways to Enjoy your Hour:  Have a candlelit event; eat dinner outside with a moonlit picnic; play outdoor games by flashlight or moonlight; roast marshmallows outdoors; go “unplugged” for an hour:  no TV, games, radios, electronics; go stargazing or a night hike; play indoor board games as a family by candlelight; go camping in the great outdoors; encourage businesses to turn off their non-essential lights…come up with your own adventure!
