HALT PennEast (Homeowners Against Land Taking), a dedicated group of landowners who have banded together to fight the proposed PennEast Pipeline, will hold a concert and silent auction on June 4, from 7-10 p.m. at Prallsville Mill to benefit it’s legal fund and other activities opposing the pipeline.

Formed earlier this year, HALT PennEast has already filed a lawsuit against PennEast to stop the company’s unlawful trespassing on private property.

“The proposed PennEast pipeline would cut through Hunterdon and Mercer Counties and threaten 4,300 acres of preserved land and farmland, protected streams and drinking water for more than 1.5 million people,” said Vince DiBianca, an impacted homeowner and Trustee of HALT. “If approved, more than 400 homeowners could lose their properties to PennEast, a private company, through the use of eminent domain.”

“Our communities will forever be changed if the PennEast pipeline is approved.  Please come out on June 4 and help us stop this destructive project,” said Jacqueline Evans, an impacted homeowner and member of HALT.

The concert will feature the music of The Spencer Johnson band. The opening act will be Spitoon. Tickets are $50 each and include beer, wine, light snacks and dessert.  They can be purchased by calling 609-483-5530 or at https://haltpenneast.org/events/

Cuban pork and vegetarian sandwiches and ice cream will be served courtesy of Dish Catering and Owowcow.
