Reminder: "No Electric Lights, No powered entertainment" next week

Remember, our ward will be practicing "No Electric Lights and No Powered Entertainment for One Night" next week (preferably Sunday night March 11). 

Start collecting non-electric lighting.  Flashlights, batteries, lanterns, kerosene lamps, glowsticks, candles, matches, solar lawn lights, etc, are options.  Determine if you need to buy more, and buy them.

Choose one night (during the week of March 11-18). 
Use no electric lights from 4 pm until the following morning.  Other electricity (for cooking, laundry, etc.) is okay.
Use no powered entertainment or media.  Pretend the power has been off so long that all your rechargeable electronic devices have gone dead.  You may talk on the phone minimally, but don't use your phone's games or internet.

See if you have enough emergency lighting.
Learn how to entertain the children and adults without power.

To my ward members:
Email me and tell me what you learned, and I will publish it anonymously, so we can all learn together.
