CMU Closing Party.
Once again, parting was such a sweet sorrow as the CMU Biological Station threw a bash to commemorate the end of another successful season. The 200 guests each brought a plate to pass as people took turns sitting down to an old-fashioned pork roast in the banquet hall. There were so many succulent delicacies that the wise feasters took only a dollop of each one, and then savored the cornucopia of tastes. No one was afraid they might eat too much, because if they did they could dance off the excess calories in the main hall as soon as the Islands best band finished its protracted, ritualized tune-up.
At 9:00 Mike Moore, Cindy Gillespie, Joe Moore, Joddy Croswhite, and drummer Mark Prosser broke into their first set with a fantastic bang, and just like that the crowd was off to the races. Over a dozen students appeared in costume--the cave man, a Martin Short character, Tinker Bell, the cat woman from Andromeda--and blended in with the happy crowd.
Once again, Beaver Island offers a collective thanks to Mary and Jim.
