Everyone enjoyed the nature center visit so i was thinking we might want to put another visit to Madrona Marsh on the calendar (in torrance) for those of you who missed that event a few years ago. It is gorgeous this time of year after the rains, the ponds fill up and frogs are everywhere. Its a really neat place.

Remember, do what you can, I know everyone is busy and there's a lot on the calendar. I am REALLY enjoying the meetings the girls are putting together, they really impressed me so far and i think everyone is doing a fabulous job!! thanks so much for your support, i can't believe we are finishing up our 6th year together! Next year the girls will be DCA's at camp shiwaka, amazing!
