Last Week’s Program

Farrell Patrick treated us to an inside view of his recent trip to Alaska. Besides displaying his own hand-panned tube of gold, he showed film of whales, icebergs, glaciers, and all the great sights that the State of Alaska has to offer. (He wasn’t shivering, so I guess the weather was great during his trip!) Thanks, Farrell for a great program!
