Dear RNPC Members and Friends,
The RNPC will hold its Annual Membership Meeting on November 30th at the Jamesport Meeting House, at 5:30pm. This year, we have the opportunity to combine our annual membership meeting with a meeting of civics convened by the North Fork Environmental Council (NFEC) at this historic meeting location. The NFEC's vice president, Mark Haubner, suggested that both our organizations can use this space for our annual meetings and to enjoy a friendly potluck dinner. This will give us a great opportunity to meet and communicate with our fellow civics in Southold Town and also to discuss community and environmental issues of mutual concern. The RNPC Annual Membership meeting will start at 5:30PM and then we will join in the NFEC meeting at 6:30.
Their announcement reads, in part...
"Please join NFEC in our first ‘Civics Roundtable’ meeting. We are inviting one or two members of every Civic Association between Orient and Calverton to be a part of what we see as a necessary step in making our region one of healthy sustainability for generations to come. This is a broad issue review and coalition building event. We will have a (Windows) laptop, projector, screen and sound system ready for your presentation which should be about 5 minutes (or less!) which lines out your Top Three issues. We will follow this with a potluck dinner and discussion session. I expect it will be lively and fun.".
We hope to see you there and would appreciate you letting us know (by email: firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are planning to attend.
As a reminder, annual dues should be sent (if you have not already) to our address below. Dues are $50 for Civic Organizations (includes all officers) or $15 for individual member households.
We look forward to seeing you there and to discussing how the RNPC can best advocate for preserving the quality of life and rural character of Riverhead.
