As I said a day or two ago, these are probably the last announcements to go on the front page, and I’ve already started to post USFS press releases on that page, and announcements, while they might be mentioned here, will shortly all go to the announcement page to the right. This happens every year when we get into spring and more and more events are planned. But these two deserve mentioning.

Celebrate the coming of Earth Day in Big Sur with dinner and a great movie, Thursday, April 5 at 6:30pm.
Members of B-SAGE (Big Sur Advocates for a Green Environment), who’s mission is to “Educate ourselves and others on living a sustainable lifestyle,” and the Big Sur Grange are showing the Hope Dance film, 2012: A Time for Change on Thursday, April 5, at the Big Sur Grange in Big Sur Valley. This film’s theme; From Conscious Evolution to Practical Solutions, presents an optimistic alternative to apocalyptic doom and gloom and will be introduced by Bob Banner, founder of Hope Dance Films.
The monthly Grange potluck will be at 6:30 p.m. Bring a dish to share and your own place setting. The movie will start at 7:00 and a $10.00 donation is requested for the movie, however no one will be turned away. Come out to visit and enjoy this intriguing movie.
Also, on April 21st and 22nd, Big Sur businesses and organizations will be offering special promotions and profiling their sustainable practices for the Earth Day Weekend Celebration. Watch local media outlets for more information, contact B-SAGE at: or phone 831.667.8823.
