August Picnic-Meeting  Aug. 12, 2014
Home of Bob & Mary Haase - Eldorado, WI

Bob & Mary Haase will be hosting the August meeting at their home in Eldorado on August 12.  The meal will begin at 5:30pm and will feature fish and chicken along with potato salad, beans, and a few other things to go with it.  The meeting will follow at around 6:15pm.   Please let Bob & Mary know if you are coming so they know how much food to prepare by E-mailing Bob at flytier@milwpc.com or calling at 920-922-8003.  If you could bring a folding chair it would help with the seating.

Directions:  From the East take Hwy 41 to Hwy 23.  Head west on Hwy 23 toward Ripon until you come to Fisher Road which is about 3.8 miles from the Hwy 41 overpass. Turn left on Fisher Rd. and go about .2 tenths of a mile and turn left on Treptow Lane.  Take Treptow to address which is fire number W7949.  It is the tan home on the left directly across from the yellow home on the right, which is about 6 homes down from where you turn off on Fisher.  From the West take Hwy 23 to Rosendale and then proceed about 4.8 miles from the city limits to Fisher Road and follow directions above.  Fisher is the next road past Cty Y coming from the west.  Turn right on Fisher as it only goes to the south.

The 2014 CWTU River Keepers' training session was held at Riverside Park in Waupaca on May 10.  People came from all over the state to be trained in the water monitoring process.  This is the ten year anniversary of our chapters first water monitoring efforts.  At this time the River Keepers have 33 teams monitoring around 40 sites in Wisconsin.
