The Forestry Club members of the 1985-1986 school year were involved in a wide variety of activities. The year started with the annual Freshman Welcome Picnic, where everyone enjoyed softball, volleyball, and good food. The Club also ventured, early in the year, on a canoe trip down the Des Moines River. This provided the opportunity to meet the new freshmen and get better acquainted with the faculty and staff. We also had Firesides which took place at the professors' homes. There were always a lot of laughs and good food. Our Christmas trees sales had another successful year. The remaining trees were donated to a church, which in turn were given to people without Christmas trees. The success of the Game Banquet and Veishea went over well due to the help of many club members.
