Annual Community Meeting January 23rd Features “Whale Tales from a Local Whale Researcher”

John Calambokidis

On Thursday, January 23rd, the Griffin Neighborhood Association will host it’s Annual Community Meeting. As always, the annual meeting is where the GNA conducts a little of the required business of the Association and presents a program of interest to our community. This year, in addition to a brief overview of the Association’s activities over the last year, and the election of the Board of the GNA, we will feature a presentation by a local research biologist.

Annual Community Meeting
Thursday, January 23
6:00 PM – Light snacks
6:30 PM – Program begins
7:15 PM – Featured speaker
Griffin Fire Department Headquarters

Our featured speaker is research biologist John Calambokidis, from the Cascadia Research Collective, who will present “Whale Tales from a Local Whale Researcher, Including New Findings on Marine Mammals of the Pacific Northwest.”

Greg Woods, Superintendent and Principal of the Griffin School District, will also speak about the upcoming Two-Year School Programs and Operations Replacement Levy, which will appear in a special election on February 11th.

This last year has seen the Association complete its fourth year with the Steamboat Conservation Partnership. With the Prosperity Grange and Restoration Hope Community Outreach, the Association sponsored a very successful summertime Community Picnic, Farmers and Local Business Fair. We supported a community effort to install the Steamboat Little Free Library and we distributed literally thousands of “Steamboat Neighborhood” stickers. Members of our Board will describe all these activities, and more.
