Meeting Program: This week our speaker was our member Sheila Anderson. She told us about her recent trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos islands. She brought a vere interesting presentation full of really good pics. 
Ecuador is a country straddling the equator on South America’s west coast. Its diverse landscape encompasses Amazon jungle, Andean highlands and the wildlife-rich Galápagos Islands. In the Andean foothills at an elevation of 2,850m, Quito, the capital, is known for its largely intact Spanish colonial center, with decorated 16th- and 17th-century palaces and religious sites, like the ornate Compañía de Jesús Church.

Thought of the day:
Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. - Norman MacEwan
