1.Home Energy Efficiency Workshop

[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.

2. OPENING NOVEMBER 2ND AT THE WEST END CINEMA
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
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.
More info is available at http://www.naturevisions.org
Meet other outdoors enthusiasts who are environmentally conscious and spiritually inclined. Of course you don't have to be all three! Our main purpose is to enjoy nature, whether it is hiking, biking, camping, backpacking or bird-watching. We'll also try to do our part to protect the environment by joining clean-ups, trail maintenance, etc., Being with nature is also great for the spirit, but when we are not outdoors we'll do meditation, book-reading, etc., We'll do our own events or join the activities of Sierra Club, hiking and biking clubs, other outdoor and environmental groups and also meditation groups. I have found that enjoying nature brings me in touch with my roots as a human being and helps me to connect better with other living beings and people, without any barriers.
Disclaimer: We provide a way for meeting people with similar interests on a voluntary basis. Participants in our events are responsible for their own safety.
