Beaudry’s Store prepared platters of tasty snacks for the early, family service, so much so that we had to rely on later visitors to help enjoy them.
The US Navy sent two representatives to honor Bob’s wartime service; an honorary United States flag was ceremonially folded and presented to Bob’s partner, Gale Lawrence, and Bob’s daughter, Kari Jo Spear. They kindly placed it within our permanent exhibit about Bob, his life, and his work.
And, last but never least, no event happens at the Museum without our beloved volunteers, who helped ensure all went smoothly.
Thank you all.May your lives also be full of birds, craft, conservation, and community.
