On February 7th an IGLA membership wine and cheese social was held at Security National Bank in Omaha, The hosts were Jim and Diny Landen & Steve and Brigid Wilkening. Over 120 Omaha lake supporters turned out to hear Bill Van Orsdel, president and founder of IGLA, talk about the threat of evasive species in Okoboji as well as the rest of the Iowa Great Lakes. A video and power point presentation were shown. Most lake property owners have heard about the aquatic invasive species but many had no idea how threatened Okoboji is at this time. It was an eye opener for all!

Additional wine and cheese socials will also be held in Sioux Falls and Sioux City at the end of March. The chairs for these events are Doug and Cathy Palmer & Tom and Kathy Walsh. For more information about these events please call our membership chairman Brigid Wilkening at (402) 681- 0783 or email her at brigidwilkening@aol.com.
