Wind Power: Educational opportunity
To the Editor:
On March 10, 2011, a gathering is planned at the Dirigo High School in Dixfield to continue the necessary information exchange regarding Wind Energy facilities in River Valley.
Personally, after 20 months, I have continued learning new aspects of the advantages and disadvantages.
The education committee has planned a free home cooked supper for all River Valley attendees from 4–6 p.m.
Following the meal, the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will provide information for discussion with attendees regarding the Saddleback Wind project.
I encourage the attendance of a broad cross-section of concerned citizens who may share opposing views. The meeting is intended to educate us through information exchange. I think we can all agree that listening and interaction are formidable communication and educational tools.
The education committee has planned for a fine meal and program. They hope to have attendees from each River Valley town. Please join us.
