Weatherization Day is observed each fall. Nationally, the Weatherization Program was initiated by the Department on Energy in 1976. Locally, the Weatherization Program under the Bay County Council on Aging has weatherized 1200 homes, since 1986, when the program began in our area. The mission of the program is to reduce energy consummation by improving the energy efficiency of the homes for low income participants. This is done by insulating attics and floors; caulking and sealing cracks and holes and making sure that appliances are energy efficient. For more information, please call 769-3468, ext. 123.
