Success!  The District held our 2024 Annual Meeting last Thursday at the Gallery On West and we had a great evening! After an awesome dinner catered by the Log House Restaurant,  guest speaker Bob Barr from IUPUI spoke to us about our Yellow River Watershed.  Thanks again to Mr. Barr for making the long trip up from Indy to educate us. Supervisor and Chairman Mike Large was re-elected, we are happy to have Mike on the board for another three-year term.  To those that attended, thank you for joining us, we hope to see you again next year!
