The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay will be “Celebrating the Return of the Shad” at its 30th Anniversary Annual Meeting at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 18 at the Safe Harbor Water Power Corp. in Conestoga, PA.

All Alliance members are invited to attend the meeting, where they will elect the board of directors for the coming year.

It is also a great opportunity to meet other members, converse with board members and staff, and learn about new programs being planned by the Alliance.

The meeting will also include tours of the Safe Harbor fish lifts on the Susquehanna, a picnic lunch and a discussion by Dick St. Pierre of the Susquehanna River Basin on “The Story of Shad Restoration in the Watershed.”

The cost of the luncheon is $10. The Alliance asks that members respond to their invitations by May 9, so that it might adequately plan for the event.

Members who are unable to attend are requested to vote for the slate of nominees for the board of directors and to return their proxy by May 9.
