SWCD sets drive-thru
annual meeting for April 15
The Gasconade County Soil & Water Conservation District Board of Supervisors is inviting members to attend its first Annual Meeting Drive-Thru from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 15. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the SWCD is unable to host its normal function, so instead has opted to have a "drive thru" lunch for its landowners. The event will be held behind the USDA Service Center at 316 S Olive Street, Owensville. The board will begin the event with presentation of its 2021 Conservation Family, Partnership, and Volunteer Awards at 11 a.m. A meal -- consisting of grilled hamburgers or brats, potato salad, chips, cookies, and drinks -- will be served. A program highlighting the district's accomplishments over the last couple of years, and a small token of our appreciation, will be presented. Those attending will also be entered in a drawing for a 2021 Plat Book during this event. The board will also be conducting a drawing for the 2021 Plat Wall map (36x60) and Smart Map, that has been accompanying Plat Book sales. Those interested in the drawing should complete their purchase before April 15. Those with questions should call (573) 437-3478, extension 3.
