Post Conference Get-Together

Well, we had a great time at the conference didn't we? Barbara Jackson, the conference chair, did a magnificent job and *things* went off without a single hitch. Yay!  The last conference event was a "Thanks to our volunteers party" at Jim Draper's art studio in Jacksonville.

There were great refreshments; we looked at the FNPS Flickr photos of the conference and past conferences (Click the link to see them yourself.); and we enjoyed the ambiance of the art studio.

Artist Jim Draper on the right was a keynote speaker at the conference and he offered his art studio for the post-conference party.

Barbara Jackson (in the green shirt) was the conference chair. She's way more relaxed now!
Laurie Sheldon (in the red dress) is the FNPS social media chair.  Doesn't she do a great job?

Art on the wall includes native orchids and sundews as seen on a recent field trip.

Drawers full other more art.
