I wanted to say a big
to everyone who came to our first meeting of the 2013-2014 year. It appeared to be one of our largest meetings of the last few years, with over 30 people in attendance. Mike Thomas (vice-president), Laura Saucier (secretary), and Mike Montgomery (treasurer), as well as several other motivated members, helped to organize the meeting and start things off with a bang. The highlight of the night was Dr. John Cooley’s captivating talk about periodical cicadas.
