> Dear Friends of Hancock County Transition Towns:
>           On Sunday, October 10, 2010, Hancock County Transition  
> Towns,  Alliance for Democracy , League of Women Voters  
> Downeast,Unitarian Universalist Church of Ellsworth  Adult  
> Religious Education Committee, Peace and Social Action Committee,  
> Peninsula Peace & Justice, and Unitarian Universalist Congregation  
> of Castine have joined forces to celebrate The 10/10/10 Global Work  
> Party.  This event is being coordinated by the international  
> climate campaign 350.org and 10:10 Global.  350.org is an  
> international campaign that's building a movement to unite the  
> world around solutions to the climate crisis--the solutions that  
> science and justice demand.  Their mission is to inspire the world  
> to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis—to create a new  
> sense of urgency and of possibility for our planet.
>            Starting at 11:45AM at the Unitarian Church on the  
> Bucksport Road in Ellsworth we will be showing two short films.   
> With over 12 million on-line views, The Story of Stuff is one of  
> the most widely viewed environmental-themed short films of all  
> time.  The Story of Stuff takes you on a provocative tour of our  
> consumer-driven culture–from resource extraction to iPod  
> incineration.   This 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the  
> underside of production, consumption, and waste will teach you  
> something, make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look  
> at all your stuff.  A local video produced by students in the Blue  
> Hill area (Lucy Jakub, Imogene Page, Lorna Stephens and Max  
> Hurvitt) called "Save my Polar Bear, Please” will also be shown.   
> Following the films, there will be a visual awareness opportunity  
> on the bridge in Ellsworth.
>  Hancock County Transition Towns is committed to educating our  
> community about the changes happening to our planet and how we can  
> become sustainable by building resiliency locally.
> What Can You Do?  All you have to do is show up and perhaps bring a  
> friend.  Please attend the films and then join us on the bridge.  
> Learn, share, and show your support for Planet Earth!
> For more information call Brenda Cartwright 207-667-9062 .  If you  
> would like to become a sponsor of this event (not financially, just  
> in solidarity), call Brenda for more info.
