Our meeting this year concluded with a surprise party for Abbie Rowlett, who for decades has been at the marketing helm, working on newsletters, catalogs, and so much more. She took off the marketing hat in mid-2019 and looks forward to some travel with husband John Rowlett, also now retired.
Each of us at Field Guides has a bird name, as most of you already know. But did you know that Abbie is the Sungrebe? Her cake is a life-size Sungrebe as well! (The confectionary crew of Tiara Westcott, Peg Wallace, Lynn Yeager, and Micah Riegner poses with the honoree.)
A few gifts were bestowed, including this one-of-a-kind art-deco Sungrebe glass dish, made by local naturalist and artist Narca Moore-Craig, a dear friend to many guides.
