About Our Speaker
Naomi Yaeger is a commissioned Earthkeeper with the United Methodist Church, meaning she has answered a call to protect the earth, taken coursework, and been "blessed" or recognized. As a reporter in Grand Forks, North Dakota, she covered a community fighting the relocation of a landfill near their town. Naomi hosts a podcast focused on environmental sustainability called “Doing My Part” on Spotify. She is a student at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College majoring and in Multimedia production, also known as digital story-telling. A former community newspaper editor, she lives on Skyline Parkway with her husband Terry Larson and their dog Maggie. Her only child, Rebecca, lives in Duluth's Lincoln Park.
COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS: Our venue, Country Inn and Suites, has a large conference room that will allow plenty of space for social distancing. Masks are recommended, but not required. Hand sanitizer will be available.
MEAL SERVICE: We will no longer be offering a buffet-style lunch during our meetings. Our new venue allows us to bring in outside food, so we have new options for you! Ticket Options:
1. Meeting Only (no meal provided) - $10. Coffee and water will be available. If desired, you may bring your own food and beverage, such as a bagged lunch or take-out meal. 2. Pre-order a Boxed Meal from The Boat Club - $25 (includes meal and meeting). The boxed meals will contain a sandwich or wrap, fruit/veg, side, and dessert. Meals must be pre-ordered and pre-paid by the preceding Wednesday and will be available for pick-up at the beginning of the meeting.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: To streamline the announcements time we are trying a new system this year. There will be "Announcement" forms on the tables that you can fill out and give to your table host. After the speaker is done, there will be time for table hosts to share all announcements with the group. After the meeting, your announcement will be posted on our Facebook page at facebook.com/ewnnorthland and in our EWN Members Facebook Group: EWN Conversations & Connections.
MEMBERSHIP: We are updating our membership terms to make it easier for all to track and maintain. Instead of annual memberships that renew on January 1 each year, you may now purchase a one-year ($40) or recurring membership ($35/year) on any date, and it will be good for one year from that date. The recurring membership will automatically renew each year using your entered payment method until you cancel. Cancel at any time! We will have a "First Choice" prize drawing for all of the people that signed up for membership in the month prior to each meeting. Visit our website to learn more: ewnnorthland.com/membership.
