There will be a silent auction, light refreshments and other events.
Help spread the word and attend this exciting fundraiser for NQ Pipeline Action as we continue our work to stop the Kinder Morgan/TGP NED project running across MA and NH. Residents of Athol, Erving, Orange, Royalston, Warwick and other towns came together a year ago to form No. Quabbin Pipeline Action (NQPA) to stop the proposed 36″ pipeline project. We have been involved in fighting the pipeline since people first heard from KM land agents in January and February 2014. The proposed pipeline still follows a path through Warwick, Northfield, Erving, Montague and other Franklin County towns before entering NH. Kinder Morgan is also proposing to build an 80,000 HP compressor station in Northfield. For more information and to contribute to the Silent Auction call Lisa at 978-790-7352. Donations may now also be made to Millers River Watershed Council – “pipeline” (100 Main Street, Athol, MA 01331). See Events for link to poster to print and give to others.
