FUNDS FOR FOOD NEEDED

The BWA would appreciate funding to help with food and paper product purchases for food vending.
BWA will run a food booth at the Cherry Valley Festival -- the only means of fundraising at the event
this year. Our budget for the event is approximately $250. If you can donate just $5 or $10,
your money will be more than doubled as profit for the BWA. Please send donations to the BWA
(marked "BWA food CVF") to BWA, PO Box 339, Henryville, PA 18332.
Thank you!

 

HELPERS NEEDED, TOO

Volunteers are needed to perform a variety of tasks, but the biggest is to direct parking.
We seek 8 volunteers to flag, point, and direct cars to the parking areas. We also need another
6-8 people drive golf carts to ferry people from the parking field to the event. We also need
about 6 people to help with set-up and cleanup.

Please let us know your interest and times you can work, by leaving a phone message
with the BWA office (570-839-1120) or by emailing info@brodheadwatershed.org.
Leave your contact information, and we will be in touch to discuss further.

Watershed knowledge

 

Your "Watershed Address" describes where a raindrop that falls on the roof of your home will travel, from the smallest springlet in your backyard to a headwaters tributary, and on to larger and larger streams until finally reaching the Delaware River and eventually the Atlantic Ocean.
