CCAC Bump the Dump 30th Anniversary Events Postponed
Angelica, NY… The CCAC board, along with various alumni and other volunteers, spent the last year or so dreaming up, planning, and making arrangements for the 30th Anniversary weekend celebrating the citizen actions and non-violent resistance that has come to be known as the “Bump the Dump” movement.
We now regretfully postpone the weekend’s activities until further notice, due to concerns over Coronavirus and the need to refrain from social gathering. We’re confident the public will understand and appreciate the board’s decision at this time of uncertainty. Please feel free to connect with us via phone (585-466-4474) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or find us online at ccallegany.org and on Facebook.
We had planned an anniversary party for April 4th to celebrate the achievements of the Bump the Dump movement. The day was to include a musical B.A.N.D.I.T.S. reunion, speakers, visual displays, and a communal dinner. We also planned an informal commemoration at the Caneadea Bridge on April 5th. Most of these activities can only be enjoyed in person, and we look forward to rescheduling.
Since we cannot gather on the 4th and 5th, please, if you will, spend a moment in quiet appreciation for the individuals who carried out this monumental, years-long effort to keep our county free of radioactive waste. We are all indebted to them. We honor their perseverance, their commitment to protecting environmental and human health, and for keeping our county pristine for future generations.
