Rockland — The First Universalist Church, 345 Broadway, will screen the award-winning film “Chasing Ice” Friday, March 14, at 6:30 p.m. Following the movie, Frank Mundo of WindowDressers will give a presentation.

“Chasing Ice” documents one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of climate change. This screening is made possible by Interfaith Power & Light as part of the National Preach-In on Climate Change.

Mundo will speak about WindowDressers’ outreach work in the hands-on effort to reduce the environmental impact of CO2 pollution in Maine by reducing reliance on fuel consumption by manufacturing and distributing insulative polyolefin window inserts. What started as an effort by members of First Universalist Church in Rockland (and continues with the outreach effort of Rockland WindowDressers) has spread to Belfast, Bangor, Vassalboro, Peaks Island and Islesboro. This year, Brunswick and Portland will be added to the list of communities doing Community Builds.
