Congratulations to Arlan Janssen the 2017 Conservation Award Winner. Arlan has been a Board Member for over 25 years.  He has implemented many conservation practices on his farm and been a valuable member of our board.  We were very excited to give this award to such a deserving recipent. 

Every year we hold an Annual Meeting to provide landowners in Peoria County with an update of our yearly accomplishments and highlights as well as to hold our annual election for the Directors whose term has expired.  Currently in the even numbered years we have two of the five directors up for election/re-election and in the odd numbered years the other three would be up for election/re-election.  Around 2007 we began having a breakfast meeting on a Saturday morning in February, now at the Brimfield High School .  We always invite both County Board members, State Legislators and other distinguished guests and give them a chance to share what they know with the group.  Staff also gives reports of the year's progress and offers updates about our various sales and educational programs.  And finally, thanks to the hard work of our dedicated Directors this year, we always have a large number of door prizes ranging from bird houses to restaurant gift cards. See below for a list of our 2017 donors and for a copy of the 2017 Annual Meeting Brochure.  The 2018 Annual Meeting will be held on February 17th.  Please see a director or the office for tickets.  They cost $7.50 and are required so that we have an accurate count for the meal preparations.  We look forward to seeing you there.
