Board of Directors & Members,
Spring is on the way, and now is the time for the OWLA Board and interested members to develop a 2009 Plan of Action for special events and activities to celebrate and protect Owasco Lake.
Please mark your calendar, start thinking of ideas, and plan to come for a:
Strategy Session for OWLA Board and interested OWLA Members
Date: Saturday, February 28 (March 7 if we experience bad weather)
Time: 10 am – 12 noon (w/continental breakfast included, starting at 9:15)
Place: Springside Inn
Meeting Topic: "Planning A Summer to Remember"
Goal: Identify objectives, support activities, tasks and assignments, estimate costs, timetables, event activities, dates, and so forth.
During the session, each chairperson (or your representative if you can't attend) can have 5-10 minutes to outline 2009 goals and plans for his/her committee. Then we will all work together to outline a plan for upcoming events, such as: Owasco Lake Day (including speaker to invite), Ring of Fire, Welcome to Summer on Owasco Lake, Adopt a Shoreline, Membership, Finances, and any other informational meetings/special events.
The outcomes of this meeting include: A Summer Calendar of Events, Projects (including Project Leaders and Timetables for each), Distribution of information on Lake Care (such as How to Landscape and Still Protect the Lake and other environmental concerns).
Building on our successes, we need your active participation in leadership and guidance to engage the community in preserving and protecting Owasco Lake. Your help is essential for success.
This meeting will replace the regular OWLA March 4 meeting, and we will plan to roll out the 2009 Plan of Action at the April 1 OWLA meeting.
