This is a reminder that tomorrow, March 28, from 8:30 – 9:30pm is Earth Hour. For one hour turn off all electricity in your home. The first year Jim and I did it we read a book out loud by lantern. It was great. We even went beyond the hour. And it was simple to do.

Make a commitment to help save the Earth by shutting off all electricity for one hour. You’ll be amazed at how fast it goes by and at how much it saves our Earth!

          Wise Great Horned Owls say “Earth Hour is a great idea!”
