This is Alison Woolpert (center, in black) making an introduction
to one of the many informative sessions that were held at our joint conferences
in 2012. The couple right in front of us are Mr. and Mrs. Noma from Japan
who were such a delightful addition to this assembly.
Alison has been the president of Yuki Teikei Haiku Society for several years now.
She spends a lot of time outdoors and is a true lover of nature.
