Forest Home Spring Potluck

Friday March 20, 5:30-8 p.m. Forest Home Chapel

Come celebrate the equinox with our community!
We’ll provide chips and salsa, a main dish or two (at least one will be vegetarian), seltzer water, apple cider, and ice cream.

Please join us even if you are too busy to bring something. No alcoholic beverages at the Chapel, please.


Practical Experience with Heat Pump / Solar Panel Installation

Wednesday March 25, 7pm. Forest Home Chapel

Installing solar panels or a heat pump system can reduce your fossil fuel use, improve energy efficiency, and make your home compliant with increasingly tight building codes. Both technologies are mature, but a mix of regulations, national and state tax incentives, historic homes considerations, and driven salespeople can make the selection and implementation process daunting.

Please join us for an informal discussion with Forest Home neighbors who have recently installed these systems. If you have already taken the plunge, please come and share your experience.
