Photo Tour
The MFA Annual Meeting took place at Coldwater, Michigan and at Coldwater Lake. Highlights of the meeting included, on Friday afternoon, either a tour of the Coldwater Veneer Mill in Coldwater , or a tour of the Bloom Dairy Farms woodlot #1 which began to be managed in 1992. On Friday evening, following an ice cream social,  a very interesting program on Raptors was presented by Mr. Joe Rogers of Wildlife Recovery Association. On Saturday morning, a tour of Pete and Marianne Klink's woodlot and a tour of the Kop Kon Nature Sanctuary was followed by a lunch at the Klink Farm. On Saturday afternoon, Pete gave us a tour of the farm grounds and provided some of its history. After the regular business meeting and banquet at the Ramada Inn, Dave Wellman provided his unique style of auctioneering for the auction Saturday night. Here are some photos of the meeting and the tours:
