The Civic Club of Harrisburg Presents “Water Blues – Green Solutions”
Harrisburg – Calling it a catalyst for community discussion and empowerment, Judy Imler, president, announced that The Civic Club of Harrisburg (TCCH) will air “Water Blues – Green Solutions,” a film featuring ways that communities have created “green” solutions for Central Pennsylvania’s water “blues.” Imler, added that “the production will encourage a dialogue addressing flooding, pollution and scarcity of clean water in our region.”
The 6:00 p.m. free public event will take place on Thursday, March 29 at the TCCH building located at 612 N. Front Street. Reservations can be made by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“The Susquehanna River and several tributaries feed into the Chesapeake Bay which has been undergoing intensive clean up under a national program begun several years ago,” Imler said, adding, “caring for our river, the greatest source of water flowing north to south into the bay and one of Pennsylvania’s great natural resources, is key to the successful environmental future of our surrounding communities.”
TCCH’s partners in this event include the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Harrisburg Parks Foundation, Capital Area Greenbelt Association and Harrisburg Regional Water.
In 1916 Harrisburg founded the country’s oldest, annual inland waterfront celebration held early each September, naming it “Kipona” a Native American term meaning “to be upon the sparkling water.” Imler invites all citizens who seek to improve the condition of the Susquehanna River and other area water suppliers to attend the airing. “Let’s reinforce the efforts of the professionals and volunteers who care deeply for our beautiful “sparkling water,” said Imler. “Let’s continue the celebration and support of our water resources begun by our forebears over 100 years ago.”
This film showing is part of TCCH’s annual community outreach program where it sponsors programs on issues of interest to its members and the citizens of Central Pennsylvania.
The purpose of TCCH and its Affiliates is to promote and engage in civic and social activities which preserve the heritage of the club and its landmark building; encourage cultural and historic interest in the community; contribute to improving the welfare and education of children and youth, the elderly and those in need; and, foster relationships with like-minded organizations.
