Prairie Plains Banquet on 23 January 2010

On Saturday, 23 January, I rode with Bill and Shirley Snyder to UNL for a fun evening.

Based in Aurora, NE, the Prairie Plains Resource Institute celebrated thirty years of working to preserve prairies with the organization's first ever fund-raiser banquet.

As visiting the Prairie Plains web site indicates, the group maintains an active involvement with Nebraska communities and does some excellent work.

As the opening image indicates, the organization also has very cool shirts, and I made sure to get one.

The organization's first auction raised a lot of money, and I look forward to another Prairie Plains banquet. This one featured "Nebraska" food, featuring Beets, Barley, and Bison, and other non-alliterative fare.

I also enjoyed the keynote speaker's presentation. Since 1984, Jim Richardson has contributed stories and photographs to National Geographic.

Check out his blog, Working Photographer, and his web page, Jim Richardson Photography, that features his photographs taken all over the world.

You can see other pictures from the evening in Lincoln.

The evening was very special, too, because I got to photograph the new member of the Prairie Plains Resource Institute's Board of Directors, Peru State College's own Dr. Bill Snyder, featured on the far right in the following image.

Congratulations to Bill!
