Two Events, One Fabulous Intersection: Green Homes & Sustainable Energy Festival AND Dancing in the Street 2008

Dancing in the Streets was an all-day event filled with free outdoor concerts, performances, open houses/tours of Fox Theatre, and live music...all literally on the street! It kicked-off the Arts Season.

The Green Homes & Sustainable Energy Festival was a free outdoor festival on Grandel Square with information and workshops about sustainable energy and greening up our homes. It was also an official Green Jobs Now Event.

Oh, and I learned about an important Ballot Proposition: Missouri Propostion C.

Missouri Proposition C, also known as the Clean Energy Initiative, is a citizen-initiated state statute that will appear on the November 4, 2008 ballot in Missouri. If it is approved by voters, it will create a renewable electricity standard in the state. The standard would require utility companies to gradually increase their usage of renewable energy annually until 15 percent of the energy used in the state is renewable. The initiative would also require that energy rates not increase by more than one percent annually. Join me and VOTE GREEN! Support Prop C.

Finally, there is an upcoming Candidate Forum on the Environment. All candidates have been invited to the forum.

See you there. Oct 6, 7 pm
Central Reform Congregation 5020 Waterman Avenue (at Kingshighway)
