Hello Friends,

Itís that time of year again! The annual Christmas social is here! All the information you need is inside the newsletter. Please join us for a wonderful time.

Many, many thanks to Joel Roberts and his family for manning our booth at the Ortega Preservation Socity Fall Festival. This was a short notice event and Joel was a huge success. We were very proud to have Joel and his family represent the JHS. their efforts resulted in a nice donation from the event sponsor.

I enjoyed seeing everyone at the last meeting. We had an impressive turnout to see Rebecca Smith. She gave a very enlightening and entertaining presentation about the ecosystem near the Kennedy Space Center. This included, but was not limited to, several herps such as the eastern indigo snake and gopher tortoise. The comparisons of how it was with how it is now was very eye-opening. Thank you, Rebecca Smith.

We are in the process of renovating the library. Hopefully we will have it up and running within the next few months. The storage problems have been worked out, and we will be purchasing new, smaller cabinets to make transportation of the library easier. We are very excited about sharing the extensive resources that have been built over the years.

I would like to remind everyone about Dr. Blaney coming next month and that our meeting will be January 8th (the 2nd Wednesday). Please mark your calendar.

Please have a blessed and safe holiday season. Please remember those who are less fortunate than us. I hope Santa is good to everyone.

See you soon!
