Spring Festival at Abilene State Park

Spring Festival

I know, this post is a little late, almost three months late. But being new to web posting and learning WordPress is my excuse. Of course spring migration and birding had nothing to do with this post’s tardiness.

Enough pontificating; here’s the story: Abilene State Park held their second annual Spring Festival Arts and Crafts Show April 22, 2006. Big Country Audubon participated by offering bird feeders, nestboxes, bird seed, wildlife paintings, bird photographs, plants, and miscellaneous items. In addition to our arts and crafts booth, we also participated in the children’s area by helping them to create thumbprints. The children were eager to show off their creative talents and Kathy did a great job of organizing this activity.

Hats off to Lorie for her overall planning. She spent months and hours with the Friends of Abilene State Park organizing and encouraging our participation in this event. The day was a huge success and you can see a few pictures of our members as they set up their booth. Thanks to those that helped: Lorie, Joan, Carolyn, Charline, Tom, Kathy, Earlene, Steve, Dolores, Esta, and John. We eagerly look forward to next year’s Festival.
