Our first open house on the mountain was a great success! 90 people were escorted up the mountain today so they could have a first hand look at what is going on. There were pro- wind and no- wind people alike. Both sharing in the experience of climbing to the top, sitting by the fire to get warm having a lunch and all gathering information and opinions about what we are all up against ENERGY AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. I think the people of power could have learned a lot from us. Too bad none of them were there. Maybe on the next one that is being scheduled for early December we could get Governor Peter Shumlin to hike up to the top with us. I will personally write to him and ask if he will come. As soon as the date is established it will be posted.
Here are some comments of today’s NEW visitors to the Lowell Mountains:
“Unbelievable – Thank-you for the inspiration to act. 90 people – beautiful & heartening.”
“Keep up the good work! I hope to be back.”
“The Destruction and Environmental damage that is being done here for the enrichment of a small number of people is astonishing and saddening. Thank- you for your work.”
“What a beautiful precious mountain. I don’t see a solution to having electricity at all and I am on the path (the downwardly, mobile path) to doing without it as I use to. ”
“Really approachable event to have an open house. It allowed people on the fence to come and see/ask and inform themselves. Where as a rally might only invite those already convinced. This felt welcoming to everyone.”
“Thanks! Lets do more hikes! Step up the opposition!”
The youngest of our guests was a toddler and the oldest in her 70’s! There will be more comments and pictures as soon as they come in!
Many Thanks to all of you!
The photographer wrote: Hiked up Lowell Mtn with about 90 people. I got a few pictures and was going to do a video but 2 Lamoille County sheriffs came and told me I was trespassing and had to move back to the other side of the property line, where it’s hard to get a good shot of the destruction. Why are Lamoille county sheriffs doing GMP’s security duty in Orleans county, on a Sunday no less, when dynamiting and a blast safety zone are not an issue? I wasn’t sure anymore what country I was in. This stinks on so many levels… sick, absurd, corrupt, needless. Sad to see such a beautiful place destroyed…. for nothing but greed.
