****Good afternoon from the staff at Richardson Bay Audubon,

Thank you for being  a part of the 5th annual Waterbird Festival.  I loved seeing the crowds of people enjoying your table.  The weather was beautiful, there was food and beverage, and lots of great chances for people to not only learn about birds, but the incredible work you do every day. The festival wouldn’t have been the same without you there.  Thank you for giving your time and being a part of our celebration!

All the best,
