[ARCHIVED] O.W.L.S. Topic Features "Bully! Meet Theodore Roosevelt"

Story County Conservation invites the public to the monthly O.W.L.S. (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) program at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park (56461 180th Street) northeast of Ames. "Bully! Meet Theodore Roosevelt" will be presented on Tuesday, May 1, beginning at 11:00 a.m.

Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president of the United States. Roosevelt's achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as the many political offices he held. Join us for Darrel Draper's presentation on "Teddy" which might even cause you to get swept up in the excitement of Roosevelt’s campaign for a third term as president. This program was made possible my Humanities Iowa.

O.W.L.S. programs are designed for "boomers" or older – but anyone can attend. An optional luncheon follows the program at 12 noon. Lunch is catered for a $7.00 fee, and registration is required for lunch by 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 27. The planned lunch menu for May is meatball subs, chips, fresh fruit, and cookie.

For registration and information about the O.W.L.S. program, contact Story County Conservation at 515-232-2516 (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday), email, or visit
