The chapter’s fiscal year ended on March 31, 2022. The annual banquet in January netted a profit of $40,584. Along with personal donations and money raised from outings and seminars, we are in a great position financially for future cold water projects.
Paige Werner has been appointed to fill out a board term vacated recently. For the past few months, she has shown a strong desire for this appointment by volunteering for projects, working on the banquet committee, and spearheading our Women on the Water event this July. Welcome aboard Paige!
Women on the Water: this event, for the ladies, will be held July 8-10, 2022 at the Pere Marquette River Lodge in Baldwin. It includes a two-night stay, meals, and a guide trip on the Pere Marquette River. Details and cost should be complete soon.
Schrems will soon be having an election to fill several open board positions. If you are interested and have a desire to work as a strong team member, contributing to our mission we would like to hear from you and how your talents might help. For more information, reach out to Steve Frendt at 616-540-0742 or [email protected].
