On Aug. 11, 2019, eight of us, George Kerr, Terry and Joel Banks, Frances Cerbins, Kathey Ferland, Sharon Richardson, Carol Ray, and myself met at Eldorado at 6:30 for dinner. We each had exactly one adult beverage with dinner, bearing in mind the important task at hand.
Gathering at Brentwood Elementary at 8:00, we saw birds were already entering the chimney. The evening was beautiful but warm with clear skies and a nice breeze.
Sharon counted 626. I counted 480. Average 553, per Carol Ray, accountant extraordinaire. Fun was still had by all regardless of counting confusion!
