FF Sacramento Community Garden Presentation
On Sunday August 30th Pat Ghiglieri of FF Sacramento gave a lovely presentation about the Four Seasons community garden where she lives. Pat has spent years helping to make this a very special place for her neighborhood in Northern California.
For those of you who would like to view the presentation, FF Sacramento created a YouTube video link which is provided below.
Tuesday, August 25th Virtual Meeting Via Zoom.
FFK had its first virtual Zoom meeting for its membership. It must be considered a complete success. There were 24 members who attended the meeting from their homes.
Members began signing in at 6:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. They shared their experiences since the club had it last meeting in January of this year.
Promptly at 7:00 p.m. Kaye Bultemier and Noel Kuck began their presentation about their 19 day excursion from St. Petersburg Russia to Beijing China. Much of the trip was aboard the Trans-Siberian Railroad.
Using maps and photos with their narrative of the trip they provided a great overview of their journey. They spent the first several days touring St. Petersburg giving the members an opportunity to see the beauty of the city.
They then boarded the train and headed to Moscow spending several day there too. One of the most interesting things was the Moscow subway or underground Metro system. It was built shortly before WWII and used as a bomb shelter then. Today it features beautiful artwork.
They made several other stops before the arrived in Mongolia. Members had an opportunity to learn about the nomad lives of the people there.
After leaving the train they flew to Beijing . From there they returned home. Both Kaye and Noes recommend the trip for others should they be able to go.
