Transition Towns Movement in the Hilltowns

Transition Towns Informational Meeting
In Williamsburg on Sunday, March 21st

The Transition Towns Movement is a vibrant, grassroots movement that seeks to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. It represents one of the most promising ways of engaging people in strengthening their communities against the effects of these challenges, resulting in a life that is more abundant, fulfilling, equitable and socially connected. We believe that we can make the transition to a more sustainable world. We hope that you will join us!

An informational meeting will take place at the Williamsburg Grange (Route 9) in Williamsburg, MA on Sunday, 03/21/10 from 3-5pm. Childcare is available. A community potluck will follow from 5-7pm. Please bring a labeled dish to share.

This is a FREE event and all are welcomed! Donations to cover expense of childcare and renting the Grange are welcomed. Learn about Transition Towns and bring it to your community!

For more information, contact Marie Westburg at amwestburg@verizon.net or call (413) 268-7899.  Please RSVP if you need childcare.

The Transition Movement is something to take notice of. I highly recommend folks take the time out to hear what it’s all about and how amazing it would be to have in Williamsburg! There’s transition towns movements happening also in Amherst and Northampton, and folks are getting together to work on ways to materialize this amazing effort. Please join in if you’re a part of the community, you’ll be glad you did!
