LURAY, Va. – Lord Fairfax Community College’s (LFCC) Luray-Page County Center will hold a global warming educational event on March 26, 2007, at 6 p.m. at the Center, located at 320 North Hawksbill Street in Luray. The event is free and open to the public.

Luray Town Planner Ligon Webb will address the issue of global warming prior to showing “An Inconvenient Truth,” the documentary by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. The film was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival and won the best-documentary feature Academy Award on Feb. 25, 2007. The film examines the impending global warming crisis and what can be done to address what Gore calls the “planetary emergency.” A general discussion will follow the film.

For more information about this event, individuals may contact the Luray-Page County Center at (540) 843-0722.
