Woohoo! The big day is next Sunday. We will graduate six Master Naturalists: Kalem Dartez, Susan Hoover, Bette Kauffman, Suzanne Laird-Dartez, Charles Paxton, Kim Paxton.
Betsy and Sonny Trammell are coming up from the CENLA Chapter to hand us our certificates. Sonny has been on the statewide board longer than I have. When I mentioned at our statewide face-to-face board meeting in September that we would love it if someone who is already a Master Naturalist would come and do this for us, they volunteered immediately and enthusiastically. Thank you, Sonny and Betsy!
We’ll begin in the Visitor Center at Black Bayou Lake NWR at 2:30 p.m. Our graduation ceremony will be short. Please bring finger foods to share. We will have a short business meeting, but will end in time to show off our beautiful Refuge to Betsy and Sonny.
This would be a great time to invite folks who might be interested in Louisiana Master Naturalists – Northeast.
Kim and Suzanne, please bring t-shirts. Christmas is coming and our t-shirts would make great gifts.
