It rained hard for the 2016 Friends Annual Meeting as it had for the 2015 Annual Meeting, even though we moved the meeting from February to March. At least it was not as cold as in 2015! Despite the torrential rain during the 9:00 to 10:00 registration hour, more than 130 people came out for the day on the refuge.
The sales on the porch, where our Friends Booth retreated to stay dry-ish, were brisk. Our new hats and re-stocked tee-shirts sold well, meaning more revenue for our projects and more awareness of Friends of Refuges when we wear our Friends-logo items around town.
