Dan Stough talked on bog filters.  The lecture was very informative.  Dan covered  aerobic and anaerobic conditions, bog material, and top and bottom draining filters. He had an excellent handout. 

The October meeting was held at the residence of Tom and Carla Briggs.  President Elizabeth Good opened the meeting at 9:10 am. Quite a few members were in attendance.  The Brigg’s backyard was centered around a koi pond with several bog filter ponds connecting to it. The weather was unseasonably warm and the shade provided by the trees and patio was welcomed.

A motion was made to have a private pond tour next year, one not open to the public.  Details will be worked out later with the new committees.
