Brattleboro Citizens' Breakfast Invitation (RSVP)

“Vermont Yankee Decommissioning: Unanswered Questions”                                          

The next "Brattleboro Citizens' Breakfast" is planned for Friday, September 19,  2014 at the Gibson Aiken Center, downstairs, hosted by Senior Meals. Doors open at 7:30am.

Clay Turnbull from the New England Coalition on Nuclear Pollution (based in Brattleboro) will be discussing some of the issues currently in play at Vermont Yankee.  “We are actually a long way from decommissioning the plant.  What should happen with VY's high-level nuclear waste presently stored in an elevated, water-filled pool?  Entergy does not yet have approval to build a second dry cask storage facility.  The site is going to be decommissioned, the question is -- to what standards?”

  • Because we need to plan for  the number of people having  breakfast, please  RSVP by no later than Tuesday, September 16  by replying to <Robt.Oeser@gmail.com> -     (or calling 518-505-9031)
  • The breakfast, provided by Senior Meals will feature Whole Wheat Pancakes,  syrup,  juice and coffee.  Cost is $6.00 for those under 60 years of age. ($3.50 is the suggested donation for those over 60 years.)
  • Brattleboro Time Traders may use one time credit hour to attend the breakfast, hosted by Brattleboro Senior Meals (Meals on Wheels).
