Friends of St. Joseph Bay Preserves members and guests are invited to attend the annual general membership meeting this Saturday, Jan. 12 beginning at 11 a.m. EST at the Preserves Center.

Members are encouraged to bring guests who may be interested in becoming a Friend of the Preserves. After the meeting, everyone can enjoy assorted chili recipes including vegetarian chili.

During the meeting, Dylan Shoemaker, the new buffer manager, and Lisa Dlugolecki and Barry Townsend, two new resource managers on staff, will be introduced. Also present will be Kim Wren, stewardship coordinator, who will make a short presentation.

Key item on the agenda is the nomination and election of the2013 board of directors and a vote on a proposed amendment to the bylaws. Members will also receive a recap of 2012 accomplishments.

The theme for 2013 is "volunteerism." There are so many wonderful ideas that the board and staff wish to implement, but we need more people to step forward to help make these projects happen. At the meeting, you will have the chance to review and sign up for some of these projects and tasks.

·         Memberships: New memberships and renewals will be collected at the meeting: $15 for individuals; $25 for families; $10 for seniors (65 and older); $10 for students/researchers; $100 or more are sponsors. Donations are also accepted. Membership fees may qualify for a charitable tax deduction.
