Once a month we are required to attend a safety meeting
with the other volunteers and paid staff in the Ocala National Forest.
They try to have it in different locations as a lot of people have to drive long distances
to attend them depending on where they are located.
Today's meeting was nice, as it was a potluck!
This meeting's topic was on bear safety.
There has been a lot of issues with black bear roaming around
some of the more primitive campgrounds in the forest.
This one was standing still for the picture ;-)
The other topic put me to sleep..
hard to tell from the slide on the screen,
but it was on electrical lines that run through the forest.
We are told to stay away from them!
No problem :-)
Best part of the meeting was the potluck!
Everyone brought good food to eat..
and we fed a lot of volunteers & staff.
We also had some unexpected visitors too..
I think they thought they should come inside to eat too!
One last shot...
Sunday night we went to Bob & Rosemary's to play
Hand & Foot.
As we got there, the sun was going down..
it was beautiful!
