For our upcoming meeting on Monday the 24th, we have Ryan Bronson from Lone Rock Timber who will discuss their ODF Operator of the Year Award for their work over the past 20 years on the restoration of King Creek. This will be our first presentation from Ryan, so please come out and see what he has to say!
Afterwards, we will discuss the 20th Anniversary Party, to be held on June 7th at the Oak Pavilion in the Coos County Fairgrounds. We have an exciting Keynote Speaker - former Secretary of State Bill Bradbury! - and lots of interesting things planned for the evening. We are looking for donations of all sizes for a Silent Auction (to benefit the Association and offset the costs of the event) and Door Prizes, and any type or size of donation is welcome and appreciated. I have attached a donation letter for you, and will bring copies to the meeting, so I am depending on everyone to help us find support & donations from the community. The letter describes what we need and has a return form for tax purposes (we are a 501(c)(3)), and so far we have small items for the door prizes like Starbucks cards and auction items like a cord of firewood J. I would love to have a big variety of items for the auction so that everyone can find something they’d like to bid on - so no donation will be turned away! The CWA can pick up large items if needed, and cash is always welcome. More on the party at the meeting.
For our April & May Executive Council meetings, we have Watermaster Mitch Lewis coming to speak on the upcoming regulator requirements and Cameron La Follette from the Oregon Coast Alliance to discuss coastal trends in land use - so two very important, not-to-miss meetings! Mark your calendars for April 28th and May 19th.
Let me know if you have questions about any of the above, and let’s hit the pavement and drum up some good stuff for the party!
Hope to see you Monday and thanks for all you do….
