Sassafras Point was the lovely setting for the Westport River Watershed Alliance’s summer gala on August 11th.
This event happens with teams of committed volunteers and dedicated staff. Our success comes from members and guests attendance and participation in our event. The silent auction and raffle is enhanced by generous contributions from local businesses and members who donated superb auction items. Most fun of all is the inspired bidding!
Many thanks to all who helped make this year’s annual event another outstanding success. To Doug Reed and Will Makris for loaning their lovely meadow on the upper banks of the East Branch of the River; to the many hard working committees and volunteers for their time and energies; to our members and local businesses that donated superb auction items.
