The Friends group 5th Annual General Membership Meeting couldn't have gone better on Saturday! We had about 65 folks in attendance, who shared great door prizes and fellowship while hearing a very informative talk about the Savannah Harbor Deepening from our featured speaker, Dana Beach from the South Carolina Coastal Conservation league.
We welcomed to our Board of Directors three new members: Connie Terrell; George Cathcart; and Tracy Toogood, and reelected Dot Bambach and Rick Shields. After the meeting 25 lucky members took a narrated wagon ride through the refuge on a perfect spring afternoon.
Many thanks to Jane Griess, our Project Leader, for her "State of the Refuges" talk; to Twila Gray and Connie Terrell for handling the refreshments; to Dot Bambach for arranging the door prizes; to all our door prize donors; to Arnie and Elly Weisbrot (our indefatigable RV volunteers) for leading the wagon ride; and to George Cathcart and Connie Terrell for staffing the registration table.
Look for the next newsletter for more details and photos.
