Lowell this Weekend: Memorial Day Weekend

Thursday May 21, 2009
"Going Green: Every Home an Eco-Home"
6:30PM - Refreshments
7:00PM - Movie Begins
Lowell High School Freshman Academy
Movie run time of 25 minutes
Narrated by environmentally aware actor, Tony Shalhoub (star of "Monk"), the movie shows us how we can live earth-friendly lives on a limited budget, even in the middle of a city. Mixing humor with everyday, affordable examples at home, the cast tours the original Eco-Home with a group of middle-school kids who discover first-hand some simple, inexpensive ways to become more earth-friendly.
Join local students and the Lowell Green Building Commission members for a green building discussion following the movie.
