The Fundraising Committee would like to thank all the members that have supported the annual auction in the past. It is not too early to start thinking about the upcoming annual auction and donation of auction items. The fundraiser provides the financial foundation for the activities of the Chapter for the coming year. So help support the Chapter by putting your craft skills to work, dust off those prints/books/antiques that are in your closet or under your bed and bring them to the annual meeting. Handmade items are always welcome! As always, the committee is interested in your ideas and suggestions on how to improve this event and keep it enjoyable and exciting for all. Contact: Alegra Powers if you have items to donate: email@example.com.
The Chapter will once again hold a GUN RAFFLE. Be on the lookout for your tickets and start thinking of who might want to buy a few. If you did not receive any and would like to participate contact Alegra Powers at firstname.lastname@example.org.

World Wildlife Fund (WWF) releases “Plowprint Report” – The purpose of the Plowprint analysis is to identify remaining intact habitat across the Great Plains. This is done by tracking cumulative loss of grassland to cropland over time. WWF is estimating cumulative loss of grasslands because the conversion of intact grasslands represents a significant ecological loss that cannot easily be recovered. WWF is dedicated to eliminating grassland loss in the Northern Great Plains by 2030 to ensure a vibrant future for the human and wildlife communities across the region.
