Buck Hill Falls Water Company intends to extract and sell OUR water, here in the Poconos. 

A similar incident happened locally in Polk Township, when Nestle tried to bottle water for their Deer Park brand.  Residents in Polk Township came together to fight off the "corporate investment."  We in Barrett must evaluate the situation and decide for ourselves. 

We are all sitting on billions of dollars in raw natural resources. Water is a precious resource.

Please Attend!

Sunday, May 28, 2017, & Tuesday, July 4, 2017 (Independence Day)

Fish-for-Free Days allow anyone (resident or non-resident) to legally fish on Pennsylvania waterways on the designated days with NO FISHING LICENSE REQUIRED (Trout/Salmon and Lake Erie permits are also NOT required). All other fishing regulations still apply.

Fish-for-Free Days are great ways for families to “catch” the fun of fishing!

Over 23 arrested so far!

March With Us

If you are sick of politicians picking their voters, politicians voting with their donors and not you and systematic defacto disenfranchisement, then we want you to march with us.  On May 13, our march will start at Thomas Paine Plaza, outside of City Hall in Philadelphia at noon.  We will continue our march for the next nine days, spending a day in Reading, PA, to our State Capitol in Harrisburg.  From May 22 to May 25 we will be lobbying our legislators and applying gradually increasing pressure to have our three bills put to a vote on the floor.  You can make a difference – march with us for a day, a few days or the whole way; join us in Harrisburg where we will make our voices heard.

Thanks for voting!  The actual election will take place in November.  Stay tuned...

A green economy is not an end in itself. Rather, […] it is a means towards a shared and lasting prosperity. But what exactly does prosperity mean? We propose a definition of prosperity in terms of the capabilities that people have to flourish on a finite planet. It is clear that a part of our prosperity depends on material goods and services. Living well clearly means achieving basic levels of material security. But prosperity also has important social and psychological components. Our ability to participate in the life of society is vital. Meaningful employment, satisfying leisure, and a healthy environment also matter. […] Thriving communities are the basis of shared prosperity. — Tim Jackson and Peter A. Victor (2013: 6)

In 2009, Professor Tim Jackson catalysed a step-change in the conversation about the ‘growth imperative’ that is structurally built into our economic system. In a report for the UK Sustainable Development Commission, Jackson dared to name the elephant in the room by asking whether “prosperity without growth” was a possibility, stating clearly why ‘business as usual’ was no longer an option (Jackson, 2009a).

American Legion Evan-s Blitz Post #922 along with the High Acres Park Committee Cordially invite you to a MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY at the High Acres Park Memorial Garden.
