Perfect weather and a perfect crowd of compatible nature lovers were on hand for our fall barbeque. First timers included Alice Shirley, Susan Kern and Regina Piro.

Friends of SPVP President at the time, Mila Stroganoff, carefully prepared individualized appreciation certificates for the members of the board who helped her make this a successful year.

Then every volunteer, from the trail and habitat restoration workers, to the Visitor Center hosts, to Judy Bacon’s hospitality people, received a handsome green engraved, quality pen.
