LETTER: Mill River Wetland Committee thanks community

Letter-to-the-EditorNEWTo the Editor:

The Mill River Wetland Committee (MRWC) would like to thank all of those who participated in our second annual Trivia Night, a fundraiser for our River-Lab Program.

In addition to raising money for River-Lab, the Trivia Night served as the kick-off event for our 50th anniversary celebration.

Founded 50 years ago, MRWC’s mission is to educate, advocate and promote understanding, appreciation and stewardship of the ecological health of river basin systems.  

Funding for the River-lab Program and other MRWC programs comes primarily from membership fees.  I am happy to report that this event raised a significant amount of the funds needed to support the more than 400 trained River-Lab volunteers who guide approximately 3,300 children in more than 650 study-trips each year. 

In addition to thanking those members of our community who came out to have fun while raising money for River-Lab, we’d like to give a special thanks to the Bear & Grill bar and restaurant for hosting us.  Stay tuned for more events throughout our anniversary year!

Lynn Shavinsky,

President, Mill River Wetland Committee, Inc.
