JDCF is hosting a panel discussion on Extreme Weather: the impacts on landowners and tax payers. Prior to the event, winners of the Biggest Tree Contest will be announced!
Steve Keeffer, Jo Daviess County Engineer, Carrie McKillip, president of the National Extension Disaster Preparedness organization, and Justin Gehrts, Galena native and meteorologist with KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, will present on the impacts and costs of the wave of extreme weather events we have already experienced as well as those predicted to come. The event will take place on Saturday, November 9 at the Woodbine Bend Golf Course, 3500 E Center Rd, Stockton, IL from 1-4 PM. It is free and RSVP’s are not required. We thank the First Community Bank of Galena/Apple River State Bank for their sponsorship of this program.
