Friends Board Meeting
The next Friends Board Meeting will be held virtually Saturday, January 20th from 3 to 4:30 pm. Meeting agenda and Zoom link forthcoming.
November Director Election
Congratulations to Kassandra Huffman, Christine Belle and Hans Bernet, who were elected to two-year terms beginning November 1, 2023. In addition, Felicia Lewis joined the Friends’ board this year as Treasurer in a special election, replacing Carol Eberhardy who has stepped down from the board just before the end of her term. Treasurers are particularly challenging to recruit, so we are grateful to her for volunteering to take on that role and join the board. The board elected a new Executive Committee with roles as follows: Kassandra Huffman continues as President, Anne Gravel Sullivan steps into the VP role, and Christine Belle the role of Secretary. THANK YOU TO ALL MEMBERS WHO VOTED IN THE ELECTION!
STEWART TUNNEL CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
The Department of Natural Resources has closed the Stewart Tunnel on the Badger State Trail due to a lack of structural integrity and falling debris. All trail users are prohibited from going through the tunnel until further notice. Visit our Announcements page for more information about the tunnel closure or visit: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/badger/.
