Have a happy and safe holiday.

Dec. 20, 2012: Dirk Reimensnyder, Wildlife Conservation
Officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, spoke about the current hunting
season, bears, deer, and the “life” of a Conservation Officer. As always, he
was very informative and responsive to the numerous questions of the 29 Rotarians
and guests who were present. His “favorite” is clearly the bear which he finds
to be a majestic animal worthy of our respect. Ken Wagner was the host. In
addition to Dirk, Ken’s guest was his business partner, Brian Elsasser. Donna’s
guest was her daughter, Kelly Warman.
