12th Annual General Meeting – Thank You!

BillDavisAGMThank you to everyone who attended and supported our 12th Annual General Meeting (AGM) that was held on #GivingTuesday, November 27th.  We hosted the AGM at the beautiful Nederhouser Community Hall in Olander Park. Michael’s catered the event and we are still working on finishing the leftovers!  Over 30 people attended, helping us review our accomplishments from the past year and looking forward to what we can do in the next.  PCS Staff presented a recap of our annual program results and thanked our volunteers and financial supporters who enabled us to have both the highest number of volunteers and marine debris removed.  

The star of the show was our 2018 Clean Stream Partner Award.  It was our honor to present Bill Davis, Volunteer Manager and ZooTeen Coordinator at the Toledo Zoo, with the award.  Bill Davis has been involved with Clean Your Streams Day since 2002!  He has supported our other annual programs, such as Get the Lead Out, CYS 365, Glass City Marathon, and Youth Patch Day, along with helping us clean collected fishing line to prep for recycling. Thank you, Bill, for all you have done to promote environmental conservation in our community and promoting stewardship of our water resources in younger generations!

The highlight of the Annual General Meeting was the awards ceremony.  Clean Your Streams Day Challenge Award Winners were recognized for their efforts.  Representatives from the Toledo Zoo Teens, Toledo Early College High School, Ohio EPA, The Mannik & Smith Group, and First Solar all accepted awards on their organization’s behalf.  Additionally, a 2019 Board of Directors election was held.  Current PCS Treasurer Joan King and Board Member Denise Fonner were unanimously re-elected for another two-year term.  Bill Buri was a new nominee to the PCS Board and he graciously accepted the position.  Thank you to our 2018 Board Members who help guide our organization to increase our volunteer base and help reach fundraising goals.
