2015 Annual Meeting
WPWA held its 32nd Annual Meeting on Saturday May 30th at our campus on the lovely Wood River. It was a beautiful, bright, warm day--a bit different from last year's meeting! We were pleased to recognize this year's award winners: Carol Ann and Mark Baker with the 10 year Watershed Watch Monitor award; Christine McIntyre Hannon, the artist who painted the stunning murals in the Welcome Center, with the Volunteer of the Year award; Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse, and Representatives Jim Langevin and Joe Courtney with the Salomon Award; and Mitch and Betty Salomon with the Lifetime Achievement Award. John and Vivian Maxson from the Born to be Wild Nature Center brought several gorgeous birds of prey to show our members and guests. Quite a few folks grabbed a kayak and had a nice paddle up the Wood River, while others stayed on land, enjoyed food and drink, and socialized with friends old and new. Pete's famous pulled pork was a huge hit, as always. It was a great day and we appreciate everyone who joined us for the festivities!
