I know you were expecting a message from Dorothy Schultz, but unforeseen circumstances appeared during the summer, and Dorothy had to step down as President. As Vice President, I am currently Acting President, and I hope that Dorothy is able to return to office soon. I also wish Dorothy and her husband, Ed, a speedy resolution to all issues.
On a sad note, our long-time member and stalwart champion of conservation, Grace Stock, died in August. Grace, shown left in a 2013 photo, was 99 years old, and had served in many positions for Audubon, locally and at the state level. Her son is planning a memorial service and will publish the details in the local newspaper. I will also be sure to post the information on our Facebook Page and Web site when information is available.
Here is some great news to start the season! Bud Adams, right, has generously sponsored our newsletter for a year! He will also provide a gorgeous bird photograph for inclusion in the newsletter. All of his subjects are residents of his ranch and beautiful to behold. Thank you, Bud Adams!
