Dear Members, and other environmentalists concerned about the Rahway River:
My name is Eric Hausker and I worked with RRWA Executive Director Clea Carchia when she was a volunteer colleague of mine with the Morris & Union County Sierra Club. She has requested my assistance in doing a fundraising auction this summer. Knowing her dedication to the cause of preserving and protecting the Rahway River, I gladly offered my services.
The following is a list of auctionable items which we are opening to bidding. We understand that this is not an easy time for New Jersey's residents, but we desparately need to build up funds to pay our operating expenses. Please make as generous bids as you are able.
