To all members of Friends of Skamokawa and interested parties,

FOS will be having its annual membership meeting on Sunday, MARCH 19th at The River Life Interpretive Center in Skamokawa starting at 2:00 PM.
Special guest speakers will be Kent and Irene Martin describing their archaeological digs in Wahkiakum County with photographs of their work.

The FOS meeting will be presided over by our Board President, Pam Emery. The FOS members will elect new Board members and perhaps re-elect current ones who might be interested in continuing their service. There will be a discussion of current business, a financial report, and a discussion of future projects the Board has proposed and an opportunity for members to discuss their thoughts about the future of FOS.

After the meeting, there will be music provided by the Harmony Hearts and a Pie Social with delicious pies baked by our very talented local bakers.     

See you there,                                 
Friends of Skamokawa Board
