Our 3rd annual “Skunks are Beautiful” Cribbage tournament was a huge success! The event held on Thursday, April 9th was SOLD OUT days before the event. There were 70 teams in the Ski Lodge at the NEW Zoo and the place was hopping! We were up approximately 30 teams from the prior year and we doubled our proceeds. At this time we would normally show you a picture of the event and everyone having fun. The person responsible for the picture taking was so caught up in the event happenings she failed to take any pictures. I know who I am so there is no need to share my name. Instead here are pictures of the wonderful people & zoo staff that helped set up, serve food, sell raffle tickets, clean up, & everything else that made this event successful. Thank you to more wonderful people (not shown below) Mary Jo Nash, Mark Soderlund, Dean Tackmier, & Steve Krawczyk.
Window Art Contest Winners
In 2015 we held our 1st Annual “Window Art Contest”. An invitation was sent out to area schools looking for interested young artists to create a design for two windows inside of the Education Center at the zoo. Pablo & Jose, students from Edison School, were this year’s winners with the design below. Gregory Frederic, talented local artist, assisted & mentored Pablo & Jose with this masterpiece! They painted on the inside of the window for an outside viewing. This was no easy task but they made this zoo animal painting look beautiful. We will have our 2nd Annual contest next Spring.
