It’s our 10th Anniversary and we couldn’t have gotten here without you! We have a great line up of green vendors in attendance and tons of activities planned for the day!

The Festival has something for everyone! Learn about local products and ideas that will help you conserve energy and create a more sustainable lifestyle. There will be free crafts, face painting and bucket truck rides for children.

This year Pow Science will be running a special children’s electricity workshop in the Jesse Smith community room. Lights light, buzzers buzz and stuff literally starts flying around during this engaging, electrical extravaganza! They’ll even use one of the best electrical conductors around-the human body-to complete a circuit the whole group will be a part of!  Sessions will be at 11AM and 12PM for grades 3 and up. Pre-registration is required. Space is limited. Please contact the Children’s Department at the Jesse Smith Library (710-7800 x 2) to sign up.

The Burrillville Farmers Market will be under the Pavilion selling their amazing vegetables, baked goods and other fine products. Stop by and see all the great things they have to offer!  Kids can make a free craft!

Soulfull Fried Chicken and Elwood’s Dog House will be on site offering lunch and snacks to purchase!  Musician, Dave Laprise of Accordian Cool will be performing music from big band, old standards, fifties, country, rock n’ roll, and light jazz.

And in honor of it being our 10th anniversary, which we think is a pretty big deal-we’re going BIG!!! Giant yard size Checkers, Twister, Connect 4 and many other fun games to play!!! Best of all, it’s free!

First 500 attendees get free bags!

Draft Advisory Opinion-Invenergy Project

Today, Pascoag Utility District has distributed it’s draft Advisory Opinion to the public regarding the Invenergy project proposal to treat and use well water from the previously contaminated wells known as Wells 3/3A.  This draft highlights many of the concerns both determined by PUD and expressed to PUD over the past several months about the risks in reactivating this well field, both in terms of contamination threat and in terms of overall sustainability of the aquifer.  A presentation regarding the draft Advisory Opinion will be provided at our Board meeting on August 29th.  Please feel free to provide written comments prior to the meeting, or verbal comments in person at the meeting.  PUD will take all comments into consideration as we prepare the final Advisory Opinion that must be submitted to the Energy Facilities Siting Board by September 12.
