A Splashing Good Time!

A little rain did not stop Zoo Members from dancing up a storm at the Zoo Society Member Party on July 27th. Dinner was served before the skies opened up - and the zoo's catering service "A Taste of the Wild" showed why they are getting great reviews and lots of business as more El Pasoans are introduced to the wonderful team of event coordinator Sandra Wakitsch and Chef Scott Wakitsch. Scott's tasty BBQ was a hit -even when it became necessary to balance umbrellas with the dinner plates. The musical group Marimba El Paso performed through the evening and got the adults to shimmy in the rain. Kids donned straw hats and had a great time splashing in puddles while forming a conga line! More than one child had to wring out their clothes after the hours of fun. Hope to see you there next year - the Member's Party is just one of the many El Paso Zoological Society membership benefits.
