The General Public and members of the Scantic River Watershed Association are invited to the 10th Annual Meeting of the SRWA on Sunday, October 20th. The meeting will be held at the Woodcrest Elderly Housing Complex, located at 75 Battle Street in Somers CT, at 6:00pm. We will gather in the Community Center – Multi Purpose Room.
The Guest speaker this year will be Bill Friday, a local historian from Enfield, CT who will present some of the history of the Scantic River. His talk will focus on the historic water powered mills and dams along the river. Bill has documented and mapped over 146 mills and 84 mill sites within the watershed and will also be speaking to the many tributaries and brooks that he has found. Bill has documented over 177 tributaries that feed into the Scantic.
Following Bill’s presentation, Pat Sharron, President of the SRWA, will give an update on the Scantic River Greenway project for the new non-motorized multiuse trails along the river.
Please come out and join us for an update on what we have been working on. A free pot luck dessert buffet will be served along with various beverages.
