Mount Union Celebrates Earth Hour

March 28, 2014

ALLIANCE, Ohio — In commemoration of Earth Hour on Saturday, March 29, the University of Mount Union will hold a special event at 8:30 p.m. in the auxiliary gymnasium of the MAAC.

According to, Earth Hour inspires a global community of millions of people in 7,001 cities and towns across 152 countries and territories to switch lights off for an hour as a massive show of concern for the environment.

Mount Union’s PRSSA and the Green Raiders have planned many activities for this year’s event including glow-in-the-dark bowling, DIY craft donation, music, spelling out a name with flashlights in the dark, a six-foot Earth ball and a pledge poster. In addition, free Chipotle will be available for the first 50 people in attendance.

The event is free and is open to the community, students, faculty and staff. For more information, visit
