President Mike Roth. What looks something like a fruit jar of “shine” belongs to the vice president and is not his.
OSFR transitioned through important states last night, Jan. 24, 2018, growing ever stronger, larger and outward. We are now also a 501 (c)4, under the rubric Save Our Santa Fe River, and now can happily endorse candidates, pointing out those whose environmental activities are from the heart compared to those whose are small or nonexistent. Thanks to all who worked on this, but especially to Terry Phelan.
Our beloved president Pam has stepped down, but did not do so until she found us a worthy replacement, which she did in Mike Roth. Not a Merrillee, not a Pam, but a Mike with his smarts, wit, dedication and passion which we have no doubt will lead us securely and swiftly through the murk and turmoil which reigns in the wake of those who would destroy our river and springs for profit.
Thank you Merrillee, thank you Pam and welcome Mike. We are happy you are here.
Other good changes and additions are Cindy Noel now stepping up to treasurer and new board member Kristen Merritt. Sharon Yeago is working night and day it seems on RiverFest, which is huge this year and looks very exciting.
OSFR meets monthly on the fourth Wed. of every month except Nov. and Dec. at Rum 138, our headquarters. All are welcome, and we are a friendly bunch.
Here is our great group of RiverFest 2018 volunteers, headed up by Sharon Yeago, front row, second from left
