A dozen club volunteers turn out to help eight blind and visually impaired children and ten blind and visually impaired adults interact with the Sensory Safari. The group worked chapter volunteers over with non-stop questions about the animals and themselves. One of our AWLS alumni worked with a blind autistic boy who at first would not touch any animal. Thirty minutes later, he was eagerly following her to the next animal and touching every display. His mother, with tears in her eyes, commented that this was a much better experience for him than going to the zoo.

SCI members like photographer/videographer Ron McWilliams have stepped up to help with the disaster in Texas. Stories are rolling in about the level of support being given the people of the affected areas by the hunting and sporting community. “As a hunter, I was proud of our community. I was there with my SAR team two weeks ago, said Ron McWilliams. “Every camo boat and dude with a beard showed up to support the efforts and save lives. The citizens were grateful, and we were honored to help. I’m looking forward to working with CJ, Graci and the Houston Chapter when we hit the ground this weekend.”
