Local Happenings Coming Up!
Two exciting local happenings are on the calendar for the week to come. First, this Thursday, Upstate Forever is hosting a screening of the great documentary series Moving Beyond the Automobile. Moving Beyond The Automobile is a 40-minute series of documentary film shorts that highlights real-world solutions to address America’s dependence on the automobile. The film series explore strategies that integrate active living and effective multi-modal transportation. This event kicks off Upstate Forever’s 2012 Active Living Event Series in Spartanburg County, designed to engage citizens and decision-makers to prioritize planning policies that support active lifestyles.
The event is free and is taking place at the Spartanburg Community College, Tyger River Campus. Thanks to Mary Black Foundation for making the event possible. Light refreshments will be served and a brief discussion will follow the film screening. RSVP by Jan. 24 to spartanburg@upstateforever.
Then, next Tuesday, the City of Rock Hill is hosting a public session relating to biking and walking in the downtown Winthrop University area. This will take place at the Glencairn Garden Learning Center. For more information, contact Danny Ritsema, Long Range Planner with the City.
