What is carbon pricing?


WHAT IS CARBON PRICING?
And How Can It Help Us in Massachusetts?
with Dr. Marc Breslow of Climate XChange

Soule Homestead Education Center
46 Soule Street, Middleborough
Monday, September 25, at 7:00 p.m
.
Since the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord this year, climate action has fallen to the states. Massachusetts state legislators have stepped up with two bills that put a price on carbon emissions from the fuels we use. No state policy is as effective at reducing the gases that cause climate change. Hear how Massachusetts citizens can seize one of our best chances to lead on climate policy. All are welcome.

This talk is cosponsored by the Climate Justice Group of the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Middleborough as part of its speaker series, and by the Soule Homestead Education Center.

North Congregational Church to Host Roast Beef Supper

On Saturday, September 16, North Congregational Church will host its first Roast Beef Supper of the fall season. The traditional family-style suppers have been hosted at the local “Yellow Church” through the generations. An all-you-can-eat delight, they continue to be a crowd pleaser for the thousands of guests who have been treated to the suppers over the years.

From sumptuous, slow-cooked roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables and cole slaw, to moist honey corn-bread and rolls, the supper is topped off with tea, coffee, cold drinks and a seasonal dessert.

A long-time guest at the traditional church supper recently stated, “I’ve been coming to these suppers for years – it’s still the best and most delicious deal in town!”

The Saturday, 9/16, supper will have two separate sittings – the first at 5:00 p.m., and the second at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are just $14 per person, with a discounted rate for children 12 and under at just $7. They may be purchased by calling Jane Bagdon at 508-947-4715 or Sue Dickow at 508-326-4446. North Congregational Church is located at 38 Plymouth Street in North Middleboro – and is accessible to all. Parking is available in the church lot or around picturesque Titicut Green.

Donation Dog Wash & Adoption Event

K9 Camp and Resort, 554 West Grove Street, Middleboro (at the rotary), will be holding a dog wash and pet adoption event on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 from 11A - 4P to benefit The Jesse Heikkila Foundation.

All visitors to the event will be asked to donate an amount comparable to the regular price of a bath at our doggie spa (starting at $25) or more. All proceeds from dog washing will go directly to the Foundation.

The Jesse Heikkila Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization was created in July 2014 in memory of Jesse Heikkila. Jesse passed away at the tender age of 7 after a five year battle with Stage IV Neuroblastoma cancer. The Foundation goals are to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer and to encourage community involvement motivating everyone to be an advocate for children with cancer.

All visitors who donate $100 or more will be entered into a door prize drawing for a flat screen TV!

Participating dogs must be on leash and current on all vaccinations.

In addition to the charitable dog wash, there will be several pet adoption agencies available to process applications.
