Parade of Colors Enjoyed by Chinese Scholars

The cold, rain, and wind definitely dampened the enthusiasm for hiking at the Parade of Colors, so our attendance would have set an unfortunate record were it not for a group of Chinese scholars from all over China who are currently studying at UW-Eau Claire who braved the weather for a taste of our glacial landscape (and weather). Local International-Student Host Paul Lin has facilitated attendance by the scholars in many prior years, but rarely have they received as warm a welcome as this year. 

Needing fewer drivers than usual, our volunteers jumped on the opportunity to inventory our merchandise and our tool collection, essential tasks made enjoyable by the team working together.
