The public debut of the UDRBC at the Wayne County Fair was a great success. Their booth, promoting local resources and all forms of energy, was visited by hundreds of fairgoers. Educational in nature, the displays featured information, some historical, about bluestone, timber, natural gas, and other environmental services in the area. On the fun side, there were balloons for the kids, and T-shirts with “More than a River” LOGO were sold. Two free drawings were conducted. A generator, five solar powered battery tenders, and ten bluestone tracks were given away.
Landowners visiting the booth were encouraged to join the UDRBC by visiting the group’s website at udrbc.org. A resolution, drafted by the UDRBC and aimed at protecting landowner rights, was signed by many concerned landowners. Once a significant number of signatures are acquired, the resolution will be sent to each member of the DRBC and the Governors of the participating states. State Representative Jon Fritz and Andrew Seder, representing State Senator Lisa Baker, visited the booth and congratulated the group on its efforts.
