Monthly Meetings

October 1 - KTOS 90-Year History

Come join us at our monthly meeting for the presentation "The Ninety-Year History of KTOS" presented by Vickie Henderson. In honor of our club's 90th anniversary, Vickie delved into the club's archives of early 20th century correspondence, newsletters, and photographs as well as historic TOS materials in Nashville. She compiled a PowerPoint presentation of the interesting information she identified. Learn about our early club members, their talents, and the legacy they left behind.

Vickie is a member of KTOS, an artist, writer, and naturalist. In 2011, she wrote and illustrated the "Discover Birds Activity Book" published by TOS. With more than four thousand copies distributed to students around the state, the book is designed to inspire students' curiosity and creativity while presenting facts about birds.

The meeting will be held in Room 118 of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine. Click here for directions.
