The students and staff at Huron Heights Public School, Kincardine, are
encouraging everyone to take part in Earth Hour, Saturday, March 28,
8:30-9:30 p.m. The event asks for full community involvement in a simple
action that can make a difference.
For this one hour, businesses and residents will be turning off all
unnecessary lighting in a public display of support for conserving
energy and preserving the environment. For more information or to

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.
