    Sunday morning we had a snake show at Halibut Point State Park.  Once again, the weather was ideal.  Nice crowd too.  Thanks to Keith, Colleen and Janice Fullman.  And thanks to John Ratti from the Department of Conservation and Recreation for a nice introduction and help during the show.

    Saturday evening we had a nice snake show at Harold Parker State Forest. Beautiful weather, great crowd.  Thanks to our volunteers: Keith B., Colleen Anderson and our friends from the New England Herpetological Society and CAVPT snake show veterans Dawn McCall and Mike Labbe.  And thanks to Alex Lawson from the park.

    And... we had a great snake show on Saturday at the Great Meadows National Wildlife Sanctuary in Sudbury MA for RiverFest.  Just after arriving at the sanctuary, I noticed these two sketchy looking characters hanging around by the park entrance. Turns out it was Norman Williams and Gerry Swislow with whom I graduated from Rich Central High School in Olympia Fields Illinois in 1970.  What a surprise. So... we made them help out with the show along with Adam Boronsky and Colleen Anderson. Great crowd. Fun time.

    Yesterday I was at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary with a bunch of our native snakes for the Audubon Nature Festival. I was helping out one of my favorite nature educators Richard Wolniewicz. Huge crowd. We were busy all day.

    We had a great Yard Sale on Saturday.  The weather was perfect.  We were set up earlier than ever.  Breakdown happened faster than ever.  We brought in over $1400.00, which is the second most ever.

    I wish I could thank everyone by name, but its really not possible with all the Vernal Pond Team members, the Kestrels and everyone who donated items or volunteered some time before, during and after the sale.  All I can say is Thank You to everyone for a great fundraising event.

    We had a nice time at the Mass State House yesterday.  48 people, mostly from the New England Herpetological Society, were there to oppose Senate Bill 490 which, if passed, would basically shut down our live animal educational presentations.  The bill was not very well thought out or very well written.  They lumped animal educators in with people who promote dog fighting.  Several of us testified against.  At the end of the day, I think I could safely say "That bill isn't going anywhere."
