Monocacy Creek Watershed Association Seeks to re-organize

The MCWA will hold an informational/ interest meeting at 6pm Nov. 22nd, just before the Monocacy Chapter Monthly meeting. Click the Read more link to view the agenda, also a link to the MCWA website is on our resources page.

  A note from Phil Burtner, President MCWA:


For the past 3 or 4 years, the organization has existed for the most part, on paper, with Susan Haytmanek and I taking care of the necessary paperwork.  We would like to hold an informal meeting to discuss the future of the organization from 6pm to 7pm on Tuesday November 22nd at the DAR log cabin in the 8th Avenue Rose Garden Park in Bethelehem.  Please try to stop by.  There is a Trout Unlimited meeting at 7pm, so there will be a hard stop at 7pm.  If anyone needs directions, or has any other questions, please let me know.

The attached document outlines some ideas that have been discussed to help get the organization up and running again.

I have done a cut and paste below for those of you who may not be able to open the document...
