Help Us Demand Action for Climate Change: Wear a Green Ribbon

Between 250 and 300 at Acadia Cinema

Sept. 14
As many were turned away from last night's showing of "An Inconvenient Truth" as who went in to the 160-seat Al Whittle theatre. The line-up was out the door and down the street at 6:30 p.m. Thanks to Paul Taylor, who ran to get ribbons and safety pins, CCAN was able to keep handing out green ribbons after my own car and fridge magnets dwindled. We collected $12 in freewill donations that will be used to promote the walk.
I am going back to the theatre today to fill a table with more free ribbons.
There are shows at 12 noon and 7 p.m. - with the potential of overflow shows at 2, 4 and 9 p.m.
Bill Zimmerman's phone number:542-5157.
John Bennett was the star of the panel and gave me a free Climate Action Tour t-shirt after. After the panel's initial presentation, I got up on stage with a map showing projected shoreline changes to Kings County - provided by NSCC student Doug Stiff. Thank you, Doug.
More details to come soon.
