Annual Banquet Slated for September 14

Mark your calendars for our 74th Annual Meeting Banquet at Clermont County’s Pattison Park Lodge in Owensville. We are pleased to announce that our entertainment for the evening will be the Wave Foundation at Newport Aquarium.

The Regional Storm Water Collaborative, which Clermont SWCD is an active member, has worked with the Wave Foundation on a new mobile freshwater aquarium (similar to the Shark Cart shown above), so we can bring the fish to you! This program is nearing completion and will be on display at our meeting, so bring the kids.

The banquet will feature a catered dinner by A Taste of the Good Life of Union Township, who will be serving sliced roast beef and gravy and chicken broccoli alfredo as the main courses. A selection of assorted pies and cobblers will be offered for those with a sweet tooth. In addition to the great food, wine from O’Bannon Creek Vineyard of Wayne Township and beverages from Old Firehouse Brewery of Williamsburg will be available for your enjoyment.

After dinner festivities include conservation awards, including our Cooperator and Educator of the Year.  We will also be hosting a silent auction – come bid on an airplane tour of Clermont County and other great prizes – and as always, door prizes galore.

Doors open at 5:45 p.m. with dinner at 6:30. Voting polls for the election of two SWCD Board Supervisors will remain open until 7:00 pm (click here for candidate bios).  Banquet tickets ($12 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under) must be purchased in advance. For tickets, download the order form on the right, or contact Susie Steffensen at or call (513) 732-7075 ext. 2.

With the wonderful program we have planned, we expect tickets to move fast. Don’t wait; order yours today!
