The CAAV steering committee has opted to lend some financial support to an interesting mix of investment opportunities available this fall.
The 2013 Harrisonburg/ Rockingham County Labor Day banquet held Sunday, Sept. 1 at the JMU Festival Conference & Student Center raised funds for the state democratic party while entertaining diners with presentations from the 2013 state democratic ticket candidates: Terry McAuliffe, Ralph Northam and Mark Herring.
In hopes of keeping climate change issues fresh on the democrats’ agenda, CAAV submitted this ad image for a looping slide show:
Knowing that one of the most significant personal actions one can make to minimize their carbon footprint is to reduce or eliminate animal products in their diets, CAAV supported the second annual Vegan Night Out held in downtown Harrisonburg the evening of Tuesday, September 17. Featuring discounted vegan meals at various local restaurants, activities and a free motivational presentation and movie at Court Square Theater, this event offered camaraderie and inspiration for devout vegans and the vegan-curious alike.
Finally, there is nothing like a vivid documentary to evoke a response. Charlottesville based Wild Virginia, dedicated to preserving wild forest ecosystems in Virginia’s National Forests, is hosting a night with eight short environmentally themed movies at Court Square Theater on Thursday evening, Sept. 26 at 7:30 pm. CAAV is one of several local sponsors for this Wild Virginia Film Festival, other versions of which were held in Staunton and Charlottesville last spring.
The Wild and Scenic Film Festival brings together a selection of films that tell stories about our planet, our beautiful and precious wildlands, and the people of the communities who love them, play in them and defend them. They open our eyes and hearts to fantastic experiences in remarkable places. They inspire a sense of wonder, beckon us towards action, highlight issues, and provide solutions.
