There is no such thing as free. Unless of course you live in the Valhalla School District and get to spend $470,000 freely, in direct conflict with the agreement, with no worries whatsoever from the Town. Now that's free!

This is revenue negative. Costs of the program being assumed by the village of Hastings. I am glad that the information about this week long event is being published and expect to take my family there.

I concur with you in being appreciative that this information is being published.

I also thank you for posting a comment related to the topic of this blog, unlike the other anonymous bloggers whose comments are both negative and completely irrelevant to this topic.

Hey Frank Lee when did you become God???????????

I didn't.

But perhaps you can explain to me what the Valhalla School District situation has to do with "FREE MOVIES, DISCUSSIONS, FUN EVENTS CONCERNING GLOBAL WARMING, OUR ENVIRONMENT".

And, even if it did, why such negativity?

If you want to blog anonymously, go right ahead. Just keep it related to the topic at hand.

It's nice to read about positive programs the town is involved in. Being green can save the town, the taxpayers money.
