Annual Meeting and Kaucher Award Dinner

The Annual Meeting and Dinner took place at the First United Methodist Church Hall, 230 N. 5th Avenue, Lake Wales. Elections of officers, and the presentation of the Kaucher Award was included in the program. This year's recipient was Dr. Paul Fellers, noted conservationist and bird authority. The Kaucher Award is presented annually for "Outstanding Service to the Community."
