Near perfect weather was the icing on the cake for this year’s jubilant Fall Foliage Festival. The legions of visitors who always flock to this corner of the Panhandle every third weekend in October in search of the elusive turning of fall foliage, once again arrived in droves. Canadian’s colorful canopy of cottonwoods created the perfect ambiance to welcome guests to our own celebration of the season.

We had a great turn out for Fall Foliage on Saturday, considering this is the Pandemic Year of 2020. The temporary exhibit, Creepy Things from the Collection, was a hit with almost everyone. One little girl cried from being scared of our candy dish and broke my heart. But everyone else enjoyed it.

Rotary Report: Mad Hatters

Body
Walking into Rotary, we were all greeted with the beautiful sight of seven exquisite pieces from the newest exhibit at The Citadelle Art Museum called “The Global Language of Headwear.” Wendie Cook pulled a few strings to be able to move the pieces from the museum for us to see. There is no other place that the people these pieces represent could be present in the same room with a peaceful outcome.

These articles have been taken from Giants of Science: Mining and Scientific Press. This sketch has featured George as their most prominent Pacific Coast scientist.
