FORKED RIVER – The Oyster Creek Generating Station invites residents and neighbors to a community information night from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on June 18.

Representatives and technical experts from Exelon, the plant’s owners, will speak on nuclear energy topics including plant operations, decommissioning, emergency preparedness, used fuel storage, safety, security, environmental stewardship and community outreach through interactive displays and talks.

Employees created the Oyster Creek Hall of Memories, a museum-like exhibition that highlights the generating station’s history, legacy and impact on the community.

“For nearly a half-century, the men and women who work at Oyster Creek have been dedicated professionals with a commitment to safe, reliable operations and a great deal of pride in what they do. Events like Community Information Night are a perfect opportunity to show our neighbors that pride and commitment,” Tim Moore, Oyster Creek site vice president, said “And our new Hall of Memories is a recognition of every employee who has ever had a role in Oyster Creek excellence.”

Light refreshments will be served.

The event takes place at the Oyster Creek Training Center on Intake View Lane, just north of the plant’s main entrance in Forked River.
