Doane 2010

Posted on Sep, 08. 2010 in Doane

What does counting fish scales, watching turtles , airbrushing, woodcarving and eating cookies have in common?

The answer: Doane 2010. The view from our classroom was spectacular; a window overlooked two small lakes, where large turtles were trolling the water’s edge. And while the scenery was a beautiful distraction, at least one of our students was intensely focused on his carving. Don Lund, a member of our class, started keeping track of how many fish scales he was burning on his Rainbow Trout. When the numbers were finally in, he counted 10,962. The class completed and mounted their Rainbow Trout with impressive skill and there was a definite sense of camaraderie there. A big thank-you goes to the Mid-America Woodcarving Association and the Doane Committee for helping to create another great Doane Experience!
