all of the volunteers who have played a role in repairs, maintenance,
restoration, cleaning, picking up litter, landscaping and office support
this year. Without you, many of the recent activities that are
bringing the Isle Dauphine back to vitality would have not been
possible. We invite anyone who has time, talent or tools to donate
to call the office and speak with our Office Manager, Denise Maul.
There are ample opportunities in ongoing winter site maintenance and the
Election Oversight Team will become active in February.
