At least 75 residents showed up for the Back Creek Conservancy’s first “meet the neighbors” open house on Wednesday, February 17 at the Seafarers Yacht Club. What a welcome!
Board members Lorie Stout and Ellen Moyer greeted guests and signed them up for our email list and volunteer opportunities. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and beer and wine (compliments of Eastport Liquors–thank you!). Molly Winans gave a brief presentation, including a nearly botched video presentation—until the recovery! Thanks to Seafarers YC’s AV genious, Mel!–what ended up being a great delivery of our video. She told guests about our recent Chesapeake Bay Trust grant and how we intend to use it, as well as sharing three upcoming volunteer opportunities: Project Clean Stream April 2, Greenscape April 23, and ongoing water testing. We were impressed and touched by the interest generated for all of these activities.
Thank you to all who attended. Your enthusiasm for our Conservancy is exactly what we need to move forward. We look forward to future social hours–and of course, rolling up our sleeves and cleaning up our creek!
