2020 Leadership Reception (Virtual)

Wind Rose
5:30 pm to 6:45 pm

Zoom - Virtual

As a Wind Rose Society Member and close friend of the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, you are invited to celebrate the successes of this past year with us at our annual Leadership Reception.

Each year, we host this event to thank you for your generous support and celebrate everything we've accomplished together over the past year. The Leadership Reception will take a different shape this year, but with the same spirit in mind!

To keep the cocktail party feel of our annual reception we have put together a few options for you: 

  • Pick up the Party: We've partnered with Churchill Events to offer some delicious food and drink for you to purchase and enjoy during the event. Craig and his team have created three options for you to choose from along with your choice of beverage pairing. You'll be able to pick up your order at GMRI on June 16th from 1:00 - 3:00 pm and pick up some GMRI swag too! Visit Churchill's Grab 'n' Go webpage and look for the GMRI logo for more details and to purchase your order.
  • Be the Chef: Try your hand at cooking one of these recipes featuring underutilized species from the Gulf of Maine, many of which you can purchase through Gulf of Maine Sashimi.
  • Get it Delivered: If you prefer delivery, we encourage you to patronize a GMRI Culinary Partner or your favorite community restaurant. 

To add to the fun there will be prizes! We will award a prize for "Most Team Spirit" (get decked out in your best GMRI gear) as well as for "Attendance from Farthest Away". 

This year, Chief Education Officer Leigh Peake will join President/CEO Don Perkins to highlight how your support has enabled the many accomplishments of our education programs. Members of our Education Team will share stories that underscore the impact of our education programs in Gulf of Maine communities.

We will host this virtual reception via the Zoom video conferencing platform and share the call-in details with those who confirm their intention to attend. 

We hope you'll join us! RSVP to Brenda Downs by Friday, June 12thNot a Wind Rose Society member? Learn more about membership and its benefits here.
