It is time for the State of the FOO Address!
Monday, February 7, 2022 at 6:00pm
All current members of Friends of Oatland Island are invited to join us via Zoom on Monday, February 7th to hear what FOO accomplished in 2021 and our upcoming vision for 2022. We will provide reports on the board’s accomplishments over the past year, the board’s capital project plans for the next year, and the financial condition of our association. We also will elect the 2022 Board of Directors at the meeting. As a working Board, we spend hours in between our monthly meeting volunteering on strategic projects both physical and fiscal. We are very much a team of animal and nature lovers that thrive on helping the Oatland Island Wildlife Center's animal residents and staff achieve goals and maintain a safe and healthy environment for all - including visitors. We appreciate ALL our members and look forward to seeing you soon! ********************
