October Board Meeting -- By Boat
At least once a year, the board of directors of Friends meets in the Town of Suwannee instead of at Refuge headquarters near Fowlers Bluff. This year, instead of driving the refuge staff members and the board members from Levy and Alachua Counties came down the river by boat. It was a perfect morning to enjoy the River, and wonderful to save 50 miles of driving. Perhaps the Dixie county board members need to start coming to board meetings on the water.
It was also a great day to all participate in the Suwannee River Cleanup and have an excellent lunch with colleagues from Suwannee,.
Dan Frisk joined in the day and got to visit Dixie County and Suwannee for the first time. He is the newly appointed US Fish and Wildlife Service Manager for the Refuge Complex that includes Lower Suwannee, Cedar Keys, St Marks and St. Vincent Refuges. The Florida Big Bend region is on everyone's agenda because of the value it has in preserving the economy and quality of life we all cherish. We are glad to have people new to the area spend time in our little paradise and be captured by its charms.
