CNV Erie, PA My Home-Our Planet-The Future (2)

Erie Benedictines for Peace hosted the event entitled “My Home – Our Planet – the Future? Commit to Make a Difference – on Sunday, September 21, the International Day of Peace. It was co-sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Mercy Sisters, and a number of Erie environmental groups and organizations. While it was initially intended as an outdoor event, the weather/wind necessitated a move to The Yehl Ballroom at nearby Gannon University. Approximately 250 people attended the program which included presentations by Brittany Prischak of Mercyhurst University’s Office of Sustainability, area poets Edwina Gateley and Hussein Hussan, and some singing groups. There were at least a dozen displays presented by environmental groups, which included activities for children and families. The Josephite Sisters maintained a table at which individuals could sign pledges to decrease their carbon footprints and receive a commemorative magnet as a reminder for having done so. It was a great, successful event!

They received good press as well, several articles appeared in the newspaper, there was a pre-event interview on a local TV station, and two TV stations came to the actual event (with inclusion in the evening news).
