Stop NY Fracked Gas Pipeline is sponsoring a Renewable Energy Fair Saturday, October 29, 2016 from 10 am-3 pm, at Maple Hill High School, 1216 Maple Hill Rd, Castleton-On-Hudson, NY 12033. Visit and learn how to save money, save energy and save the planet.
At the Fair, there will be about 40 exhibitors providing a one-stop shopping opportunity for answering all one’s energy-related questions, and thereby showing one how to reduce one’s carbon footprint. There will also be children’s activities and food. In addition to exhibitors there will be a series of 15-minute presentations on different topics. Admission and parking are free.
