Our chapter owes a great deal of gratitude to Bill Waycott for his excellent leadership, and to Diana, his wonderful wife, for her contributions as well. Bill will be staying on the Board as Field Trips Chair, and therefore we will not lose his wisdom. The torch now passes to Melissa Mooney, who, as Vice-President, has been responsible for our excellent speaker program during the last year. We also welcome our new Vice-President, Kristen Nelson, who will welcome any suggestions and contacts regarding our 2020 speaker program. Kristen is the discoverer and describer of Chorizanthe aphanantha, a new species of spineflower, at the head of Froom Creek canyon.
