Many of you who are reading this are long-time Friends' members and as such, you are aware of our newsletter schedule. For those new members, however, the editorial volunteers who piece the Reflections newsletters together take a two-month summer break. So, Reflections is not issued July or August.
We do this for two reasons. It gives our editorial staff some time off over the summer, for one. Secondly, the very hot months at the Refuge seem to be a bit slower, as everyone and everything seem to hunker down to wait out the heat.
We will faithfully return with a jam-packed September issue, though. In the meantime, we will leave you with this image to remind you that every month is a beautiful month at the Refuge.
