Stewards River Outing

Dear Stewards,

Another Labor Day has come and gone, and I'm looking forward to meeting with you again on September 25 and October 30 (rescheduled a week later than the original October 23 meeting). We are pleased to be hosting Scott Wilson, Manager of Hydroelectric Generation at Prairie du Sac and Kilbourn (aka our dam) as our speaker at the September meeting, starting at 6:30 in the library's large conference room. Wilson will update us on the fish elevator plans.

Our secretary, Joan Smoke is moving to lead a new parish in Ohio, and you are invited to attend her farewell party on September 22 at 10 AM at Holy Cross Church on Unity Drive.

When you are in Portage this month, be sure to stop by the Portage Center for the Arts at 301 E. Cook Street to see Steward Ellen McGaughey's show "My Inner/Outer World: A Naturalist View" through September 28. Gallery hours are W-F from 1-6 PM and Saturdays from 10-3.

We have a new fundraising plan to share with you; we'll ask for your vote at the September meeting on an image to promote our mission. We'll also provide updates on the proposed Pattison Sand Mine in the Lower Wisconsin Riverway and the shoreline standards being proposed by the WI DNR.

Pizza will be served at the beginning of the meeting; bring your own beverage, and also bring a friend who may be interested in joining us.
