March 9, 2011 Meeting...

The meeting was chaired by Jane Owens. Jane opened the meeting by covering a few business items, then switched gears, moving us into an excellent Video and Digital Slide presentation by Whitney Miller, one of our newer members. Miller, as she goes by, has made several trips to Southern Africa.

She shared her exciting experiences at an animal rescue and rehabilitation facility in South Africa. She has been there several times and has worked with the animals and personnel at the compound of the SanWild Rescue and Rehabilitation facility. The variety of creatures they have rescued spans for elephants, rhinos and lions to meercats, bush babies and reptiles. Miller is quite an adventurous soul.

Following Miller, Jane Owens gave a lively, and as usual, humorus rundown on her recent trip to India. Although Jane didn't show any photos, she painted many word pictures and once again demonstrated her ample skill as a story teller.
