Huron Heights urges all of Kincardine and the surrounding area to join this year's goal of being among one billion people demonstrating their belief that it is possible to take action on global warming, a cause that grows more urgent by the hour.

As a kick-off to Earth Hour 2009, Huron Heights will be shutting off all non-essential lighting at the school on March 27 for one hour during the school day. Students and staff will also be looking at ways the school can easily conserve energy every day.

Earth Hour is a message of hope and a message of action ... any hour. Be the change ... every hour.

To ensure the event is held safely and successfully, it is important to remember safety when handling candles or open flames. Make sure adults are present to supervise any alternative lighting during Earth Hour, and all flames are kept away from flammable material.
