In conjunction with Fall Festival this year, Auburn will also host the 2nd Annual Central Mass Energy Fair. The Engery Fair is a partnered effort with the Auburn Fall Festival and Homecoming to connect the residents and businesses of each community to vendors, service providers, and information that will encourage and empower them to save energy and make “greener” decisions.
The Energy Fair is organized by a team comprised of Town employees and resident volunteers from Auburn, Millbury, and Sutton who are passionate about green energy. For more information you can visit http://www.centralmaenergyfair.com/
