An OWLA business meeting is scheduled for this Saturday, August 28, from 9 until 10 a.m. at the Emerson Park covered picnic area nearest the Pavilion.
The regular OWLA meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 1, starting at 6 p.m. at Springside Inn. Ken Lynch from the DEC will present a brief update, and the remainder of the agenda will be announced soon.
And, we need several OWLA members to be present next Thursday, September 2, at 4:30 pm, when the more than 500 signatures on the petition started on Owasco Lake Day will be brought before the Auburn City Council.
Please try to attend both meetings; we will keep the meetings focused on the many issues to be addressed and look forward to seeing OWLA members and friends there.
