Beginning on Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, 2009, the West Middle Wind Project will be raising awareness and seeking donations in support of the plan to install an educational hybrid solar-wind power generation system at West Middle School and Carroll County Outdoor School.
Students will be at local Chick-fil-A restaurants sharing information and selling pinwheels made from recycled paper. The “Pinwheels for Power” fundraiser will kick off at the Chick-fil-A location at the Town Mall in Westminster on April 22 from 5-7 p.m. The students have the ambitious goal of selling 10,000 pinwheels at a suggested donation of $2.00 each.

The pinwheels will be displayed on the West Middle School lawn on Wednesday, May 20. Members of the community are invited to attend an informational meeting to learn more about the solar-wind project on May 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the school media center.
A group of eight students has been working on this project since April, 2008. The students gave a presentation to the Board of Education last summer.
