Your Board met by phone on June 4th. Restrictions due to the virus are really slowing us down. Christ Church at Grove Farm is not permitting indoor meetings in their facility at this time, so we may or may not have “in person” Chapter meetings in the fall. Alternatives including Zoom sessions and video streaming are possible. Christian Shane is working on a schedule of speakers. Bob Bukk has proposed that the Chapter sponsor a scholarship for some worthy college student to honor Tom Walsh. National TU suggests that we give money to a department head who picks the winner and managed the grant rather than doing all this ourselves. Bryan Mathie has been busy identifying possible conservation projects for the Chapter. Bryan has also been busy organizing next year’s Cabin Fever Expo. The big news is that Kelly Galloup will be the keynote speaker at the event. (Photo above is one of Kelly’s famous ties). Plans are underway to have a dinner for Kelly on Saturday night and possibly a limited attendance fly tying session. The hotel has permitted us to move the Flea Market out into the hall which will open up 6 spaces for vendors and possibly a Conservation Corner for education. Draft minutes will be posted shortly.
