Local Motion Film Series and Q & A with Staunton City Council members set for June 21


It’s not every town where your local city-council members will come out to meet with you at a local eatery, or discuss the ideas presented in a film. But that is the case in Staunton, where Vice Mayor Dave Metz and Council members Bruce Elder and Ophie Kier will take part in a panel discussion after a screening of the film “In Transition 1.0,” a movie about remaking local economies pruduced by the worldwide Transition Network.

The event – at the Mockingbird in Downtown Staunton at 7 p.m. – is sponsored by Transition Staunton Augusta, in partnership with Staunton Green 2020 and The Spencer Center for Civic and Global Engagement.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Call 540.213.8777 for reservations.
