Sun & Fun Community Celebration at SCC in Bennington
The Second Congregational Church invites everyone to a community celebration of solar, sustainability and the environment with displays by many local non-profits, environmental groups and the various groups who meet regularly at the Church. It takes place on Saturday, August 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 115 Hillside Street in Bennington. SCC, a Green Justice Congregation, recently had solar installed on the roof, and are hosting this event so that people can see and learn about solar power and other sustainable and environmentally-friendly topics. Educational material will be available on the environment, recycling, composting and wildlife. Local beekeeper Reed Goossen, will display an educational bee hive and honey. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Cindy Legge Trio will play a high-energy mix of cover songs and original music. There will be food, and numerous kids’ activities, including a scavenger hunt, story time, face painting and s’mores made in solar ovens. The event will be held rain or shine.
