From the Chair – Noelle Arena

Happy Holidays! This is the most wonderful time of the year! Hopefully everyone has not been too busy plowing snow. This month we decided to move the date for the meeting to the 13th instead of the 20th. We are hoping for a better turnout with the change, and for a good reason!! This month we have DroneSeed presenting. I have had the pleasure of talking with Grant a few times and he is very excited to present. Next month the State Forester, Peter Daugherty, will present a summary of 2016 and a look at 2017. The January meeting will be the third Tuesday of the month, the 17th, as normal. Hope to see everything at the meeting this month on the 13th!
