Boone Electric Coop Community Building

It’s the end of an era for Columbia Audubon Society. We have been holding our monthly meetings for decades at the Universalist Unitarian Church in their sanctuary. Earlier this year, they asked us to move our meetings to the basement meeting room. This got us thinking – should we consider moving to a more modern meeting place? Judy Lincoln, our current CAS Vice-president, got to work calling different venues in Columbia. Each location had their pros and cons but one stood out from the rest. What we chose has an easy sign up process that allows us to lock in our dates and times months in advance; it was literally built for non-profit organizations just like us; it has modern amenities that make it easy to set up for our presenters and make us look more professional.
The Boone Electric Community Building was the clear choice to start holding our monthly board meetings and presentations. We want to thank the Universalist Unitarian Church for all the years of letting us hold our meetings there. With most of us having a tiny computer in our pockets, it’s easier than ever to go to our website no matter where you are and see when our next meeting or field trip is.
The Boone Electric Community Building is located at Boone Electric Headquarters – 1413 Rangeline St. – just south of I-70. It is on the south side of the front doors of BEC and we’ll be meeting in the Amp Room. We hope you can all join us for our first meeting in our new meeting place on Thursday, October 19th as Edge Wade discusses her birding journey with us. We hope to see you at the picnic September 17 at Wildhaven! See below for more details about the picnic. Happy Birding!
