Earth Day is BACK!

After a successful first year, Granby has once again decided to host an Earth Day celebration. The date for this year’s event will be May 21 in Granby’s own Polhamus Park. This year, in partnership with Teresa Hill and Slopeside Productions, Infinite West is honored to be taking a more active role in getting this event off the ground. Visit the Slopeside Productions webpage to get a glimpse of the 2011 event. Stay tuned for more information, including the history of Earth Day and opportunities for businesses or families to get involved! We are currently looking for sponsors, vendors, volunteers and educators. Please contact Jessie W if you are interested in participating at any level.

Buy a Gift Card and Help Infinite West Raise Funds!

Infinite West is now offering pre-loaded Safeway gift cards. For example, you can purchase a $100 Safeway gift card from Infinite West. The card will be pre-loaded for the $100 amount. You can use the card at any Safeway to purchase food, other grocery items or even fuel. And, Infinite West will receive a 3%-5% donation (on the $100) from Safeway.

This is a great way to budget your monthly grocery shopping: purchase a card in the amount of your monthly budgeted grocery bill (for example, $500) and help Infinite West at the same time.

What a great idea! Order your cards today by following this link or filling out the form below:

We did it!

The board of Infinite West was notified last week through IRS letter that we are now officially a 501(c)(3). Contributions made to Infinite West are deductible under section 170 of the tax Code. We are now qualified to receive tax-deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the tax Code. It was further determined by the IRS that Infinite West is a public charity.
This is a major step forward for us. We hope that everyone who follows our mission and projects will help us by either: joining us as a member, a sponsor, becoming a volunteer, or by making a generous contribution to our causes and projects.
Thank you!

GASLAND

A 5 time award winning production that introduces us to the term hydro-fracking is well worth the time to view and then do a bit more of research on called Gasland . The production is truly controversial but what isn’t these days? Oil and Gas companies would have us believe that they are giving us what we want. Perhaps they are but, what do you do when your well contains the only water you have to bathe your family in or the only drinking water supply available, and the water is that well is toxic or flammable?
In reviewing some of the web published comments, both sides are presented. But, is the film hype or truth? The viewer is left to decide. The production is still worth viewing and discussion.
Gasland was conceived of, directed, primarily filmed and narrated by Josh Fox. This is his second documentary, his first was entitled Memorial Day. The executive producers of Gasland are Debra Winger and Hunter Gray; producers are Trish Adlesic, Fox and Molly Gandour; co-produced by David Roma; cinematographers are Fox and Matthew Sanchez; editor is Matthew Sanchez; supervising sound editor is Brian Scibinico; animators are Juan Cardarelli and Alex Tyson; consultants are Morgan Jenness and Henry Chalfant and researchers are Molly Gandour, Barbara Arindell, Fox and Joe Levine. The film is dedicated to the non-profit organization Damascus Citizens for Sustainability.
