The last week in September of 1981 marked the Society of American Foresters National Convention in Orlando, Florida. Dr. and Mrs. Thomson and seven students traveled to the "Sunshine State'' to be part of this gathering of professionals. Donna Grosz, Gail Hall, Jody Nelson, Dave Peters, Jim Schone, Claire McDonald, and Frank Lucido listened to seminars and working-group meetings on this year's theme, "Increasing Forest Productivity''. While these meetings occupied the majority of our time, we were still able to enjoy the alumni breakfast, Walt Disney World, Clearwater Beach, and the immediate Orlando area.
