Crede,

What an amazing event yesterday! We from EHP had a wonderful time both celebrating the MD win and networking with so many incredible MD and WV partnering organizations. While I heard you speak from the stage, I got too busy talking to folks to find you to introduce myself and thank you for the invitation in person. Congratulations again on a great win and on a terrific event! I hope we’ll continue to be in touch as this journey on shale gas continues!

Best,
Jill

About

Friendsville  was the second town to ban fracking in Maryland (after Mountain Lake Park) and the first to ban water withdrawls.

Friendsville’s Source Water Protection Plan won the 2015 Source Water Protection Plan of The Year from Maryland Rural Water Association.  This plan helped lay the groundwork for the municipal fracking and water withdrawl ban. Friendsville has a town sub committee called FREE, Friendsville Renewable Energy Effort, which seeks to make Friendsville a leader and example of the use of multiple power sources for community produced clean energy including wind, hydro and solar.

Friendsville is Garrett County’s oldest settlement and was founded in 1763.
