Highlights from the September Chapter Meeting

At the September Quartely Chapter Meeting, Suzanne Holland taught us about monarch butterflies, Jim Waggener told us about the 28-year long wildlife surveying project in the county, and we recognized members who reached Service Hour milestones, culminating in Bob Dinse receiving his 2,500 hour pin.
