As the Girl Scouts celebrate their 100th year anniversary, we are also preparing for “2012:Year of the Girl.”From 1912-2012 Girl Scouts all over the world have been working towards becoming girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.As we try to make our Earth a better place, we try to save as much energy as possible. On March 31, 2012, the local Girl Scouts would like to invite all of Mason County and the surrounding hill country to join them in saving energy during “Earth Hour.”“Earth Hour” is an act “to raise environmental awareness and get us doing small things in our daily lives that together can have huge impacts.” This Saturday, March 31st, from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m., we are asking households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. You can learn more about it at EarthHour.org. The goal, of course, is to inspire people to reduce their energy consumption. Just think of what can be achieved when we come together for a common cause!Earth hour is so much more than just switching off your lights. It’s about changing the world. Will you join us?
