C-CARE Halloween Parade, Norwich

Please join C-CARE this Saturday at 2 PM as we march in the Norwich Halloween Parade during the Pumpkin Festival! We are marching against fracking with the theme "Warding off the Vampires." We have a float with drummers, decorated signs to carry and necklaces of garlic to distribute to ward off any vampires.

The parade starts promptly at 2 pm. We are meeting up between 1 and 1:30 PM on Division St, one street north of the Hale St light on the right side of Route 12/ South Broad St .

Bring a drum or sign, volunteer to carry one of our props, wear a costume or simply just attend! If possible, let us know to expect you by writing ccare at frontier.com

Chenango Community Action for Renewable Energy (C-CARE) placed second marching in the New Berlin 50th Youth Days Parade on Saturday, 8/27. The group was previously awarded second place in the Chenango County Fair Parade on 8/9. Parade goers experienced a spirited, drumming group of community members marching with signs, banners, windmills and giant sunflowers carrying messages related to promoting renewables and raising awareness of the dangers of gas drilling and fracking. The people along the parade route waved and cheered.

C-CARE supports the development of sustainable, renewable energy in Chenango and neighboring counties and believes the long-term economic well being of our county requires a clean natural environment that supports sustainable agricultural practices and recreational enterprises.

Be sure to watch Chip Northrup's presentation on the false promises of shale gas economics and what we can do locally to preserve Chenango County by prohibiting heavy industrialization.
