Getting stuck in traffic and having technical difficulties didn’t stop Don Weiss from presenting Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, the Crown Jewels of the National Park System, with a little help from Monica Miller,( who was on time but not in possession of the flash drive the program was on!) The wildlife, scenery, and thermal features are like no other place in N. America, or the world. Known as the Serengeti of N. America, it was the world’s first national park. They experienced weather from the 20’s and snow to the mid-70’s and cloudless sunshine. They saw wildlife from ground squirrels to a grizzly with cubs. Flowers were everywhere and the snow-capped mountains inspired and impressed.
Thank you to Judy Stark, who made our holiday favors this year. An ornament filled with milkweed seeds.
This night was our Annual Holiday Christmas party and Cookie Exchange. The table was overflowing with goodies and the mulled cider hit the spot on a cold evening.
Tim Manka continued our annual tradition of reciting “The Night Before Christmas”
The club will be on hiatus for the winter. See you at our next meeting March 8, 2018.
