Bancroft,Ontario,Canada

Approximately 70 people gathered in the downtown. Carrying lights,

noisemakers, an earth flag, and a 350 banner we walked along both sides of

the main street to our Millennium Park. The crowd listened in total

silence as we gathered to hear the speech by the President of the Maldives.

We were then led in an exercise of gathering and scribing ideas for

decreasing our carbon footprint...actions that anyone of us could take.

With our local doctor / photographer high above us in the town crane, we

posed for photos...including one in the 350 shape. Considering the

snowfalls of the week reaching, in some cases, one meter, our turnout for

this most important vigil was spectacular. Check out our facebook page '350

Bancroft' for a stunning video. Thank you 350.org for allowing us this

opportunity to have our hopes and dreams communicated to the world's leaders
