WEST DUMMERSTON — Green Mountain Camp (GMC) is kicking off “Harness the Sun,” a campaign to purchase solar panels, with an outdoor music event on Sunday, May 15, rain or shine.
The “Harness the Sun” campaign is committed to making GMC a green(er) mountain camp by purchasing 51 solar panels in a local solar array to cover 75 percent of the camp's annual electric needs. This is part of the ongoing efforts at Green Mountain Camp to lower its carbon and chemical input into the environment.
The music starts at 2:30 p.m. Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic, and come listen to the Vermont Jazz Center Sextet and local band The Shriners. Donations will be accepted at the camp's entrance.
The concert coincides with an open house beginning at 1 p.m. on the GMC campus at 565 Green Mountain Camp Rd. in West Dummerston.
