Annual Meeting and Holiday Brunch – December 7th

Our Annual Meeting and Holiday Brunch will take place on Saturday, December 7th, at 10:00 a.m. in the Vallecito Room at the Fort Lewis College Student Union.

Brunch reservation deadline is Saturday, November 30th.


Activities will feature a review of 2019 SJBAS field trips; a preview of 2020 field trips; introduction of new members; door prizes; a silent auction; and good holiday cheer. 


The Annual Meeting will include the election of SJBAS officers for 2020 and table discussions to gather member input about the future of our society. A week before the brunch, the Board will send out a list of questions so that Brunch attendees can be prepared to discuss their answers and so those who aren’t able to attend can provide their thoughts to the Board.


The brunch will be buffet style with fruit, eggs, diced potatoes, ham, bacon, bagels, banana bread, juice, coffee, tea, and water.


The cost is $25. This amount helps pay for the brunch plus the use of the room and the excellent AV equipment and technical support. Members may invite non-members to attend. To make your reservation, follow this link to the Holiday Brunch Reservation Reply Form, print the form, and mail your completed form and check (payable to SJBAS) to SJBAS, Attn: Randy Graham, PO Box 3153, Durango, CO 81302.


The Silent Auction will benefit the John W. Sanders Education and Internship Fund. Last year we made $400 for the Fund and this year we hope to do even better. If you have any lightly used items you would like to contribute, please come to the Brunch a little early and bring the items and a pen or pencil to fill out a silent auction sheet which SJBAS will provide. Note, in the unlikely event that your item doesn’t sell, it will be yours to take home. In addition, if you would like to contribute an item as a door prize, please bring it wrapped.


Bring cash or checks to pay for silent auction items and to pay your 2020 SJBAS dues.


Come join your friends for this popular event; see you there!


Note: Volunteers are needed to staff the check-in table and help decorate the tables and clean up. To volunteer or for additional information, please contact Susan Hicks at or 970-759-7152.
