Featured Speaker from Cascadia Research, Updates from Members of the Community, and More
As always, this year's Annual Community Meeting is a combination of Griffin Neighborhood Association business, an opportunity to hear from members of our community, and a featured speaker. This year's feature is a presentation by John Calambokidis, Research Biologist from Cascadia Research
. Our own Eld Inlet occasionally plays host to whales and we think this talk, entitled Whale Tales from a Local Whale Researcher, Including New Findings on Marine Mammals of the Pacific Northwest,
will provide an interesting perspective on these intriguing visitors in our Puget Sound backyard. Join us Thursday, January 23rd at the Griffin Fire Department Headquarters. Beginning at 6 PM, there will be light refreshments and socializing. The meeting will begin promptly at 6:30 PM.
Members of the Board of the Griffin Neighborhood Association will provide a brief update of this last year's activities. Those of you who are members of the Association will be able to nominate and vote in members of this year's Board.
Greg Woods, Superintendent and Principal of the Griffin School District, will speak about the District's Two-Year School Programs and Operations Replacement Levy
which will appear in next month's election.
The Annual Community Meeting is a time to reconnect with neighbors and with the Griffin Neighborhood Association. How did the Association live up to its mission, over this last year? Learn more about the GNA and how you can become more involved in goings-on right here, where you live.
The Annual Community Meeting is also the time when many people choose to either join or renew their membership in the Griffin Neighborhood Association. We'll have membership forms and will be able to take your dues at the meeting. Or read further down in this newsletter for links to join or renew online.
We look forward to seeing you this Thursday evening, January 23rd.
