On Wednesday, October 17, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm, the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee (WRWAC), is holding its second annual celebration dinner at Birchwood Manor. This year we are pleased to honor and recognize Dr. George Van Orden for his years of service, commitment, and dedication to the WRWAC. Dr. Van Orden was instrumental in improving water quality in the Whippany River and is featured in the WRWAC's movie River's Journey. To learn more about Dr. Van Orden's contributions to the Whippany River and beyond, please take a moment to read his biography.
The dinner is also an opportunity for the WRWAC to raise critical funds for our ongoing efforts to preserve, protect, and maintain the land and water resources of the Whippany River Watershed. All proceeds from the Celebration Dinner will be used to support and fund the WRWAC’s efforts throughout the watershed, including riparian restoration (e.g., removal of invasive species, planting of native vegetation), river clean ups to remove garbage and other debris, the installation of rain gardens, rain barrel workshops, and educational materials for local schools.
If you would prefer to pay by check or would like to purchase a table, please print the Pay-by-Check Form and mail to the WRWAC at PO Box 223, Morristown, NJ 07963.
If you would like to support the 2018 Celebration Dinner in other ways, we are currently looking for sponsors, advertisers, and/or donors for the tricky tray/silent auction to be held at the dinner. More information about each of these opportunities is available by clicking the links below.
