The Brodhead Watershed Association will honor Craig Todd, retiring Executive Director of the Monroe County Conservation District, and the Monroe County Planning Commission at its annual Members & Friends Celebration on September 30.
This year, it’s all about how BWA’ s work in the local watershed affects the Brodhead and beyond, touting the theme, “We’re part of something bigger!”
That far-reaching influence will be showcased from 6 to 9 p.m. at Northampton Community College’s Pocono Hall in Tannersville, as BWA honors those who have proven their dedication to protecting our water quality.
The guest of honor will be Craig Todd, who has shown exceptional commitment to maintaining a healthy environment for future generations. He is retiring after 34 years as manager of Monroe County Conservation District.
BWA will also honor Monroe County Planning Commission as a valuable partner on BWA's Green Infrastructure Project, an effort to spread “green” places and procedures throughout Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg and Stroud Township.
Andy Johnson, Director of the Watershed Protection Program at the William Penn Foundation, will be keynote speaker, talking about the Foundation’s Delaware River Watershed Initiative and how the BWA fits into that bigger picture.
The party continues with the ever-popular silent auction as well as multi-chef display cooking, hearty hot and cold appetizers, gourmet desserts, wine and local beer.
More celebration sponsors, as well as donors of items or services for the silent auction, are welcome! They will be gratefully acknowledged in event publications. To donate, please see the website or contact information listed above. Your contribution is tax-deductible!
