Volunteer & Sponsor Appreciation Reception 5:30 - 6:30pm

We are celebrating you – our wonderful volunteers and generous sponsors!    

With your time and support, Soil & Water gave hundreds of seedling trees to students, helped clean thousands of pounds of trash from streams and rivers, trained volunteers to monitor our waterways, as well as educated the public at the Hartford Fair, festivals and community events.  

Enjoy complimentary appetizers and cash bar.  We even have a special gift to present to those who spent time volunteering throughout the year. 



Board of Supervisors Election 5:30-6:30 pm

Soil & Water has a five-member Board of Supervisors elected by landowners and residents of Licking County. As unpaid Public Officials, the Board members are responsible for conducting business within the scope of the laws and administrative rules.  Board members also help guide Soil & Water’s mission with professionalism, efficiency, and effectiveness.  

Two Supervisors will be elected to a 3-year term commencing on January 1, 2019.  

The top two candidates with the most votes will be announced at the end of the Annual Banquet on November 7, 2018. 



Dinner & Awards Celebration 6:30 – 8:00pm
