The silent auction will begin at 11:00 am and the luncheon will begin at 11:30. Then at 12:30 we will have the noisy fund-raising auction and 50/50 raffle. Members of the public are invited to attend this luncheon to help ENF and learn about the many things that ENF is doing on behalf of the bald eagle and other endangered species. The Annual Business Meeting and Award Ceremony for ENF members will begin at 1:00 pm.

Lunch will be a Swiss Steak Luncheon, catered by the Sidetrack Café in Apple River. If you have any special food requirements, please contact us and we will try to have them taken care of.

We urge you to support our fund raising efforts, which enable us to continue our many activities. This year, ENF will be conducting a 50/50 raffle, If you are interested in participating in this raffle, please join us for the meeting, or send your money before the meeting. Proceeds from both auctions and the 50/50 raffle will help ENF with its ongoing research and educational programs to help the bald eagle and other endangered species.

One of the main items of business will be the election of 7 members to the Board of Directors. Other business to be considered is how ENF can promote its Million Dollar Campaign to find out what is causing the downward spiral of the bald eagle population along the Mississippi River so something can be done to reverse this downward spiral.
