Healthy Lakes and Rivers Program Training

Soon after celebrating the group's first anniversary, the Friends of the Sauk River participated in the Healthy Lakes and Rivers program training. Members Mitch Bender, Kurt Franke, Coralee Fox, Sarah Sewell, Joe Storlien and Abbi Wittman worked with other participants to develop leadership and management skills to assist the fledgling river group.

The Group Takes Off

By November 2005, the Friends of the Sauk River had drafted by-laws and articles of incorporation, became an incorporated organization, held elections for an interim Board of Directors, began planning a community visioning session and drafted a river management plan. Not bad for a bunch of otherwise busy people.
