What is a Transition Town?

Transition, Ready or Not

  • Have you hear of Transition Towns and wondered what they are?  
  • Have you wondered where this economy is going and if it will ever be normal again?  
  • Do you sometimes think we'd be better off if we could focus on our families and friends, rather than the frenzy that is life in America today? 

If you answered "yes!" to any of those questions, we have information for you that could be life-changing!  Tune in to The Power of Peace on KSER, 90.7 FM (or on the web) on Monday, December 5th at 6:00 pm and listen to inspiring local activist and teacher Jackie Minchew talk about "Transition, Ready or Not!"

Don't let the "ready or not" part scare you; it may just turn out to be the best thing that's ever happened!
