Thanks for all who came out yesterday to enjoy a glorious fall day in the arboretum. It was great meeting you all. Here are a few events happening around town that I thought you all might be interested in. I will be at the home energy efficiency workshop tonight.

To rsvp go to http://www.meetup.com/CarbonfreeDC/events/86083232
  • [masked]th Street Northwest, Washington D.C., DC (map)
  • Join us for an exciting discussion on how you can weatherize your home and make it more energy efficient. Energy efficiency basically means using less energy to accomplish the same tasks – doing more with less. By improving energy efficiency, we can save money, save on energy resources, make our home environments for comfortable and, on a larger scale, help to reduce carbon emissions in our community.
    Our panelists will provide the audience with information on energy audits, practical guidance on weatherizing our homes (apartments and houses) and insights on DC programs that help make energy efficiency a financially viable option.
    Panelists include:
    Brett Wiley, Lead Organizer for the Strong Homes Program of Groundswell (www.groundswell.org)
    Hasim Dawkins, Community Energy Savings Manager at the DC Sustainable Energy Utility (http://dcseu.com/)
    Akili West, President of Reclamation Energy (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/akili-west/6/a04/b54)
2. OPENING NOVEMBER 2ND AT THE WEST END CINEMA
THE BAY


Two million fish washed ashore. One thousand blackbirds dropped from the sky. On July 4, 2009 a deadly menace swept through the quaint seaside town of Claridge, Maryland, but the harrowing story of what happened that Independence Day has never been told – until now.

From Oscar®-winning* director Barry Levinson and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this nerve-shredding tale of a small town plunged into absolute terror. The authorities believed they had buried the truth about the tragedy that claimed over 700 human lives. Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing the cover-up and an unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak.

Told from the perspective of those who were there and saw what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours though people's iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, web cams, and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge.

The West End Cinema is located at 2301 M Street NW, Washington, DC 20037 (entrance on 23rd Street). To purchase tickets, please visit www.westendcinema.com or call (202)[masked] for more information. 

3. Nature Visions Photo Expo
I'm a volunteer for Nature Visions, an event in Manassas that is all about nature photography. It is organized by six amateur camera clubs in Northern Virginia. We would like to let everyone know about an event on nature photography, the Nature Visions Photo Expo. It was formerly known as Meadowlark Photo Expo. Three years ago the Expo moved to the Hylton Center on the campus of George Mason University in Manassas.
If you are interested in wildlife, nature and landscape photography this is an event you should consider attending.

Many thanks,
Bill Corbett
