Our Annual Members’ Meeting will be held at the Leadville National Fish Hatchery. If weather permits we will meet under the pavilion at the picnic grounds. If you need to drive up to the picnic grounds, please do so; otherwise, park below and walk up.  We will be having a potluck breakfast/brunch with the meeting, so if you care to, please bring something to share. The Friends will provide juice, coffee, and water.
During the meeting we will  discuss the budget for 2018, talk about our plans for improvements to hatchery grounds, solicit new ideas from members and hopefully find new board members. Come and contribute your voice to your Friends group.
Following the members’ meeting, the board will meet to select officers. All members are invited and welcome at the board meeting. For questions,  or if you’d like to be considered for the board, please call Judy Cole at 719-293-1829 and leave a message.
