Reutlinger Community for Jewish Living
Today, Andy and I went out to Danville to give a butterfly presentation at an old folks home. The people were really sweet, they really enjoyed seeing all our specimens. It was a very pleasant spot. It had comfortable seating on the patio. Art made by the residents lined the walls. A huge aviary with beeping birds was being cleaned while we were there. And of course, they had a nice common room with a lovely tv for the presentation. Some people fell asleep soon after we started, but that was okay. Usually, we have people come up to the table to see specimens, but instead we walked the jars around the room. That seemed to work pretty well. After the presentation, we walked out to the garden and gave them some ideas about where to put butterfly plants. So it all went very smoothly, even though it was our first time at an old folks home. But I'm glad I don't live in Danville. It was hot!
