Announcements for May Meeting
The announcements given during the May meeting were only a fraction of the complete list that are linked to below.

What Wasn’t Said
• There are several fund raisers that are taking place in the next few weeks that you may be interested in. Notably Culture and Cocktails at LLELA and Grape Expectations at Twelve Hills. See the announcements for details on each event.
• We have several opportunities to get out into the field to visit properties that are usually closed to the public. The Clymer Meadow Spring Wildflower Tour on May 12th and the Blackland Prairie bus tour sponsored by the Native Prairies Association of Texas have been very popular. You may signup for the Clymer Meadow tour but we are still waiting for details on the NPAT North East Texas Prairie bus tour; stay tuned for that.
• There is an updated calendar with meeting dates (still the first Wednesday) and places through September. We are still challenged to find rooms large enough for the meeting that will allow live specimens like snakes and insects. When possible we are scheduling chapter meetings in north Dallas county.

We encourage you to bring picnic foods to share with everyone. We’ll have many different activities related to the chapter history and nature walks around the gardens.

If you are a creative ice cream maker this is for you! Please bring your best homemade ice cream for everyone to taste and we’ll award a prize for the best Vanilla, Fruit Flavor, and Fusion Ice Cream.

May Presentation: Waltz Across Texas – a dance across space and time
Tom Dill gave a unique presentation about the geology of Texas using maps that illustrated the formations that are found around Texas.

The program was fascinating and rich in details which would not be as interesting without the commentary from Tom Dill. We will try to find a way to make the presentation available as Tom has given us permission to do so. It is, however, a very large file because of all the color slides.
