The August general meeting of the Southwest Illinois Chapter of Wild Ones marked the first anniversary of the formation of the chapter. The meeting was at the home of chapter vice-president Grace Gavin, whose beautiful native gardens provided a wonderful gathering place.
Indoors, members shared scrumptious snacks and a chapter birthday cake while they discussed possible future projects and other chapter business. Present were well-known former St. Louis chapter members Dorothy, Jerry, Nan, and Neil. Others included some who had not ventured often to St. Louis meetings and new members, who were enjoying having a chapter in their own locale. Four members from the Saint Louis chapter attended.
