All the winners and more populate the photographs I took from the dinner.  As always with these events and the photographs posted, feel free to download and use the images as you like.

Coach Mark Matthews, who arrived here the same year I started, some twenty-three years ago, celebrates at the Hall of Fame Dinner in this video one of Peru's greatest softball teams.

In addition to Mark's comments, I also recorded the remarks by three of the stars of the 1996 team and will add their names later.  What fun to watch these friends, many of whom had not seen one another for twenty years, start up right where they left off:  more than a little fun to behold.

New members Cory Catterson, Kristi Herman, and Ron Kelly address the audience:

SOAR and Feathers and Verses in Aurora, July 7 and 14

On July 7 and again on July 14, I served as one of the featured presenters for SOAR, sponsored by the Prairie Plains Resource Institute in Aurora.

As the photographs suggest, the the students learned about a dozen or so birds, including Prairie Chickens, including their songs.  They
all also colored birds of their choice--and with the colors that appealed to them.

SOAR--Summer Orientation about Rivers--offers a broad range of educational programs.  And I was thrilled to take part in this year's fanfare.

On July 7 (Once I figured out just where the event took place in Aurora) and again on July 14, I offered four twenty-minute programs and enjoyed myself considerably.

The folks at the Prairie Plains make important contributions to the people of Nebraska, and I hope to take part in the program in the summer of 2015.

I especially enjoy working with Amy Jones, Bill Snyder's energetic and wonderfully organized daughter.
