Lights out at Snoqualmie City Hall for Earth Hour

The World Wildlife Fund asked individuals, businesses, governments, and organizations around the world to turn off their lights on Saturday, March 27 for one hour – Earth Hour – to make a global statement of concern about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.

The city of Snoqualmie has officially registered for Earth Hour to support the statement for climate change.

Snoqualmie City Hall also will go dark from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. (local time) along with thousands of cities worldwide. In 2009, more than 4,000 cities in 88 countries turned out the lights.
