April Meeting Reports
Posted on Apr 18th, 2016
These reports are a way to let the public know what FOR’s been up to. It’s also a way that someone can determine if there is any way they’d like to get involved in things. Please contact FOR if you are interested. (Select Volunteer on the "Contact Us" drop down list.)
Twenty-five friends friends of the river attended the regular first-Saturday-of the-month breakfast at Dido's Restaurant.
Six FOR volunteers manned the Friends of the River SB display at the annual Migration Celebration. Thanks to President Mike Goodson, Director Vanessa Taylor, Treasurer Bob and Susan Bailey and Director Tom and Ange Ronayne for spreading the good word about the FOR organization. Next year, the FOR display will be on the list of places where children stop to have their Migration Celebration Junior Naturalist Passport stamped. When complete, the passport is taken to the Friends of the Brazoria Wildlife Refuges Nature Store to receive a free prize.
FOR Directors Tom Ronayne and Fred Kanter attended the Brazoria County Petrochemical Council (BCPC) meeting that took the place of the second quarter Phillips 66 Citizen Advisory Panel (CAP) meeting. BCPC includes more than 20 companies, which account for about $8.25 billion in economic impact in southern Brazoria County.
