Speaking about pollinators

February 12,  2013 – I had the great pleasure of giving a talk to Fitchburg Rotary Club at the Fay Club, Main Street. It was a wonderfully attended lunch meeting, with a chef prepared meal of broiled Brussels sprouts, thin spaghetti with veggie sauce. There was also a beautiful salad, a meat selection and roasted potatoes with skins.

The talk was about pollinators. The audience had lots of questions; I was delighted to answer them and was encouraged to learn that individuals want to be part of the solution. Postcards and business cards were distributed. I even met an elder retired teacher who taught lower grades years ago. She is ordering the books on Amazon and told me how much she enjoyed the talk.

I am terribly happy that I relocated to Fitchburg, in the fall of 2012. I see so much good work going forward from groups such as Fitchburg Rotary Club. With “Can Do” people like this, Fitchburg in its re-urbanization, can grow in its efforts towards a  Higher Purpose.

This is also known as the “Butterfly Effect.” Do good work; it’s like a pebble in a stream, it just resonates out.

Thoughful review of The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book

Book review for The Monarch Butterfly Coloring Book was sent from Jeannette Ruby, Florence, SC. The  book is available at http://www.amazon.com

“Thank you so much for sending the coloring books. They are extraordinarily educational and inspirational. I knew they would be special but they command ‘perfection.’ Congratulations on yet another dream, which I realize entailed an enormous amount of time, labor and co-ordination. Your associates are also very talented. My congratulations to all.”
