From our President Joe Wasileski:

OWLA's next board meeting will be Wed. Nov. 5th at 7pm at the Springside Inn in Fleming.

There will be a business meeting followed by a presentation on Owasco Flats with Sandie Duran; Owasco Flats Reserve and Andy Zepp from the Finger Lakes Land Trust.

The December meeting will be a special event probably held at the new Auburn Theater. It will be a fund raiser, with the showing and discussion of The Tale of Two Lakes. We will need HELP to pull this off.

A few of us are going to the Land use seminar at Belle hurst Castle on Oct 30th. Please email me if you need a ride. This will be a eye opener of a meeting. Try to make it. A complete agenda for our Nov. meeting will follow soon.

Thanks - Joe
