Learning at a Rotary Meeting

submitted by Communications Chair Ron Carter
 
This week at Rotary we learned about bats.  OK.  So you thought all we ever did was work on doing good around here.  Mostly, that’s true.  Not today.  Today our speaker was Meg Dunham, board member of Bats Northwest, and expert on rehabilitating injured bats.  We learned there are fifteen species of bats in Washington state, and more than 13,000 species worldwide.  Some migrate in winter.  Some hibernate.  Some live to 34-years old!  All eat insects.  And if there’s one making a home in your patio umbrella, there’s not a darn thing you can do.  Sorry, Rotarian Don Hutchins.
