Programs and Activities:
The Kelsey Chapter has emerged out of presidential bankruptcy and is staying alive. Patrick Plantenberg is in charge of program planning (contact 431-4615), Bob Person has taken on fi eld trip scheduling (contact 443-4678), and Kathy Lloyd has returned as the president once again!
The Chapter awarded a $500 grant to the Townsend School District for a native plant garden to be installed this fall and next spring.
