Connecting to the Larger Community
On February 2, 2019, the Friends of Dyke Marsh again participated in Mount Vernon Supervisor Dan Storck's annual town meeting at Mount Vernon High School, at which Supervisor Storck and other officials reviewed his accomplishments and challenges facing the community. FODM had a table and materials in the exhibit hall alongside other friends’ groups. FODM volunteers greeted visitors and informed them about Dyke Marsh, the restoration project and FODM’s activities and goals.
In the photo at left, FODMer Dorothy McManus and Cathy Ledec greeted visitors. Cathy is a FODM member and president of the Friends of Huntley Meadows Park, a "sister" organization.
