May Meeting
The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd in the Tensaw Theater at 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center at 7:00 p.m.  Arrive at 6:45 for refreshments.  Harriet King-Ingraham will conduct the meeting and introduce our special presentation and guests, Dr. Doug Phillips and Roger Reid.  Dr. Doug, creator, producer, and host of Alabama Public Television's Series Discovering Alabama, and Roger Reid, producer, director and writer of the series, will present their film, "Oil Spill". 

Here is a direct quote from the film:  "While Discoveing Alabama is a natural history series showcasting the beautiful natural wonders of our state, in this show we are compelled to examine a tragedy assailed as the most catastrophic oil spill in U.S. History - that no doubt will affect our state for years to come."

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see the film as presented by Dr. Doug and Roger!  Each and every Discovering Alabama show celebrates the natural wonders of our state, and this film is no different.  As Doug Phillips says, "come along as we discover Alabama".

April Meeting Notes
Juli Day did a fantastic job leading April's meeting which had a very large turnout of members!  Juli presented on the Alabama Scenic River Trail (ASRT).  She covered many details of the ASRT including the mission of the trail, the area/miles the blueway covers, and  their very informative website: http://www.alabamascenicrivertrail.com/    Juli also did a slide-show presentation of ASRT's recent two-day Spring Delta Paddle which many MBCKC member's participated in.
