Nov 23, 2005 — Aubuchon's Hardware is partnering with United Way and Comlinks to offer 'Change A Light Bulb Day.' Selected Aubuchons will be selling low-wattage Energy Star light bulbs and giving energy saving seminars. Monday's seminar is in Malone, with other seminars next week in Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake.
Jim Britell is energy manager for the not-for-profit Comlinks in Franklin County, one of the event sponsors. He says that this is just one small example of how local non-profits and churches across the North Country are stepping up efforts this year on public education...and forging partnerships with local businesses. He told Gregory Warner that in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, local safety net organizations have three reasons to act with new urgency.
Change A Light Bulb Day energy saving seminars will be held from 5-6 Monday evening at Aubuchon's in Malone, Tuesday evening in Saranac Lake, and Wednesday evening at the T-L Shopping Center in Tupper Lake. Malone on Monday, Saranac Lake on Tuesday, and Tupper Lake on Wednesday.
