FearringtonEdge Programming Updates

Our Recent June 04th Program

As part of its effort to facilitate neighbor-to-neighbor technical information sharing, FearringtonEdge presented a Generators & Batteries program session on June 04. The session was designed for residents to speak to other residents who have installed backup power solutions. Over 30 Fearrington neighbors joined the conversation about cost, installation experiences, and maintenance of various emergency power devices ranging from whole house generators to a lightbulb that stays lit when the power goes out, Participants shared their plans for dealing with almost inevitable power outages during summer storms.

Our Next Program on Wednesday, August 07th

FearringtonEdge continues its focus on how technology can enrich our lives with an August 07th evening presentation by Durham County document preservation specialists about preserving, digitizing and online sharing of fragile but valued documents, photos, and books. (Please note that the flyer distributed at the backup power session referred to an incorrect date.) Residents who have items they would like to have evaluated for proper preservation should email fearringtonlink@gmail.com. Time restraints may limit the number of items specialists can review.
