Chapter Executive Committee Attends Planning Meeting


The Sierra Club, Iowa Chapter Executive Committee met in late August to update strategic plans, develop committees and discuss fundraising.  Donna Buell, Chapter Treasurer, hosted the two-day event at her home on Lake Okoboji.  The Executive Committee worked very hard during the weekend meeting, but they managed to get a little play time in while at Iowa's Great Lakes.  The Prairie Lakes Group executive committee hosted a social hour, led a tour of Cayler Prairie and trekked with a group of meeting attendees to a local fen.  Below are some shots captured during the weekend event.  Photos by Jim Riggs and Neila Seaman.
