Green & Lean is a free series of monthly lectures which focuses on ways to save money and resources.  They have adopted a very pragmatic approach – no technical jargon, no complicated concepts, just straightforward information you can put to use in your own home or place of work. Next meeting will be Wednesday, October 21st at 7 PM, Putting It All Together: Wood, Wind & Solar.  You will learn what the local Coast Guard is doing to integrate retrofitted boilers (from oil to wood pellets) with wind and solar in staff housing and the base – a workable model for home and business owners. Held at St. John Episcopal Church; sponsored by ROOTs, St. John Episcopal Church, & Downeast Group of the Sierra Club. Contact Erika Shriner, 244-3532 for more information.


All Saints Day Performance. Again this fall the St. Saviour’s Choir will be giving a special performance in honor of All Saints Day on November 1st at 3 pm.  The major work for the program is Schubert’s Mass in G Major, which will be accompanied by a string ensemble and organ.  This is one of Schubert’s vocal gems, with beautiful melodies and harmony.  This concert offers all of us a meaningful opportunity to remember our loved ones who have gone before us. We hope you will plan to attend this musical afternoon and invite a friend or neighbor to come with you.
