Since the group began and was chartered in the fall of 1971, the theme was the 70s, with tie dye and psychedelic colors and clothes. About 40 people were in attendance with several former presidents and officers, new members, visitors, plus special guests: Gene Stokes, district 13 president of Texas Retired Teacher Association, Dr. Michael Cardona, superintendent of San Marcos Consolidated School District and Dr. Eric Wright, superintendent of Hays Consolidated School District.

EXPLORING NATURE: SPARROWS

Tiring of my usual backyard birds such as black-crested titmice, Carolina wrens and northern cardinals, I traipsed over to the Patsy Glenn Refuge one recent afternoon and walked to a bird blind at the back of the property.
