Program:  Fred and Peggy Heiman have been producing wildlife videos, both topside and under the water, since 1990.  They have won numerous awards for their films in national and international film and video festivals.  Some of their footage has been shown on the Discovery Channel and on National Geographic Television.  Tonight's program is "100 Species" -- 10-15 second clips of the most majestic and interesting critters in the world.

Raffle:  Snuggly Blue and Gold afghan to keep you warm in new Memorial Stadium!  Beautifully hand knit by Club member, Diana Zerbach.  All proceeds go to the Club's TAAP scholarship fund.  Thank you, Diana!
