LightsOut Akron is a community-wide event for
citizens, businesses and governments across Summit
County to turn off their non-essential lighting for
one hour. It's a simple act that you can turn into a
long-term, high-impact habit to cut carbon emissions.
The event will be held Sunday, April 20 in conjunction
with EarthDay which is April 22.

This group is looking for volunteers to help with LightsOut Akron. For more information, contact them via their web page.
