Our program for this week, February 15th features newly appointed Executive Director of the McDowell-Sonoran Conservancy, Justin Owen, and Interim-Director of the McDowell-Sonoran Conervancy, Paul Staker.  A lot of activities are taking place in the Conservancy  and we look forward to learning more about these activities and the direction for the Conservancy. Four of our club members are Stewards in the Conservancy.
Special Day for Special Kids (SDSKs) is now only ten (10) days away. Last week Bill Bergdoll circulated a sign-up sheet for work assignments for our 33rd annual SDSKs.  Please make sure you have signed up for our club's signature event.  "All hands on board!"  Also, remember our club meeting on February 22nd will be at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park in the Pullman car next to Indian Bend Road.  Bill Bergdoll will cover last minute details for SDSKs. Breakfast will be catered by Wildflower Bakery.
I had a nice conversation with long-time club member, Len Teicher this week. Lenny is having surgery this week to improve circulation in his legs.  It was good to speak with Lenny.  He sounds good, and sends a hearty "hello" to all SSRC members.
