As we approach the end of the our 25th year, we are starting to think about what 2017 will bring for us.  It was a great year for SCCi in 2016.  We stepped it up a notch with events, marketing, fundraising, outreach, and overall publicity.  We also started hearing from more of our volunteers.  It was wonderful to see what the power of volunteering could do for events such as Bats, Beer, & Bluegrass and the TAG Fall Cave-In.  We anticipate more outreach to our volunteers and Preserve Managers in 2017, and hope to hear from each of you.
Below is our 2017 calendar so that you can save the date for many of your favorite SCCi events throughout 2017.
Feb 4 – Member's Appreciation Day at Fricks
Feb 25 – Board Meeting
March 11 – Preserve Managers Meetings
June 10 – Board Meeting and Annual Meeting
August 26 – Board Meeting
November 18 – Board Meeting


Keep your eyes open here and through our social media outlets for more SCCi initiatives, goals, and updates.  Without you, our supporters and volunteers, we couldn't move forward with our mission of conserving the caves of the Southeast.

SCCi's first ever online auction is up and live!  We have a lofty goal of $2500 and we KNOW we can do it! Our items are either hand-made or extremely unique and would make great gifts for the caver/art lover/nature lover on your Christmas or holiday gift list. Many thanks to everyone who contributed items; Bob Biddix, Glen Mills, Carolina Payne Shrewsbury, Mel Eady-Pumplin, Tim White, Bill Halliday, Jody Bailey, Kelly Smallwood, Jean Rush Huffines, Nathan Williams, and Eugenia Johnston.
