Coquille Watershed Association Monthly Meeting
Next Monday will be our last Executive Council meeting for 2013!
John Jones, our Board Secretary, will share a video: “Logging for Salmon, Restoration at Camp Myrtlewood”, and we’ll have our last general discussion and take care of business before we part for the holidays.
Since this is the end of the year, please remember that we are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, and donations to us are tax-deductible. Dawn & Kurt are compiling a “wish list” of items we are in great need of - so if you are feeling generous or just need to take a little off the top of the tax bill, we can use just about anything - from cash, tools, landscaping equipment, office supplies - and a crew truck! We will be needing to replace the crew’s truck - the “Crummy” - because it is on its last legs and crew safety is of utmost importance. We’ll need to figure out how to do that on our limited-to-none auto funds, so any help would be greatly appreciated, and the crew is not picky - a working engine & brakes, heater and room for tools - it could be pink as long as it is in good working condition.

Our 2012 taxes have been done and can be viewed at the office, please let our Office Manager, Liz, know if you would like a copy. 541-396-2541.
I will not be at the meeting on Monday as I’ll be away celebrating my 39th birthday - again - so if there is anything you’d like to discuss, please give me a call. Ernie & Dawn will update you on our Yankee Run applications to OWEB & the WNTI, the NFork Ecological Restoration project the crew has embarked upon, Dawn’s involvement on the Gorse Action Group and the re-start of the South Fork Action Plan. Afterwards, I’ll send out a re-cap and any new information before we turn our minds to the end of the year.
Eric Himmelreich & Holly Huchko are recovering from the helicopter crash and are very thankful for the cards, flowers, donations & well-wishes. We are very, very happy to hear that they are healing and that their spirits are high. Check out the attached picture for a wonderful shot of Holly - the true Bear Fan (all respect to her from another Bear fanatic). J
We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary in 2014 - so plans are underway for a fun event thanking our sponsors and partners, and I would love to hear of any ideas you have to commemorate the momentous occasion. I will also need help with the party planning from any of you that are interested.
Thank you for all you do!
