Images From PMUA Fair

This year's PMUA event was re-named the Eric C. Watson Memorial Environmental Fair in honor of the late Executive Director, Eric Watson, who also served before and after his PMUA directorship as director of Plainfield's Department of Public Works & Urban Development.

Hiw widow, Tonya Watson, was on the dais as officials including Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, Freeholder Linda Carter, Mayor Adrian O. Mapp and many others spoke of Mr. Watson's dedication to the environment and to Plainfield.

(I could not get photos of the officials as I was on the dais myself - see my view of the audience below.)

I came back later to take photos of the many exhibits and attractions.
A crew from the PAAAS High School was interviewing former PMUA Assistant Executive Director David Ervin.

Many community organizations were on hand Saturday. The fair featured fun for children and free food and drinks for all. Environmental education was a key theme.

It was a lovely day and Eric was well-remembered.
