2021 Annual Meeting is April 12th 7-9 pm

ZOOM on a computer near you!

On April 12th, 7 to 9 pm, the Friends of Heybrook Ridge will finally hold their 2021 Annual Meeting. We will review our 2020 efforts, discuss future goals, and elect members to the Board of Directors. As always, the public is invited, and we especially encourage participants inclined to run for election (or to nominate others) to join us. This year there are six Board positions open. We will select BOD officers (including a new president) at the same meeting after the board positions have been filled. Due to the (sigh) ongoing Covid risks of in-person gatherings, this meeting will be held by Zoom—heaven help us, we’ll do our best!.

No matter your age or prior experience, if you have a desire to make a difference for our local and Sky Valley communities, please consider running for a BOD position. We meet bi-monthly, usually at a site in Index. But until conditions allow (hopefully by this summer) we will be meeting via Zoom.  If you would like to attend, please email current President Ann Darlington at anndarlington320 (at) gmail (dot.) com to be included in the 4/12/21 meeting. We hope to see you there.
