President’s Column – December 2019

The holiday season is upon us. In the next month or so, many of us will spend more time with our families and friends than we do at any other time of the year.  The retail business will speed up, and the average speeds on our congested, holiday-shopping roads will slow way down.  Tempers will flare.  Be patient, and take a break from it all at our December luncheon.  This will be a simpler, smaller affair than our joint luncheon in November, and on our normal third Wednesday of the month, which is December 18th.

This month’s speaker is Brooks B. Ellwood from the LSU Department of Geology and Geophysics. Professor Ellwood will be giving a presentation on geological and geophysical work that has been done to understand the LSU Campus Mounds.  The mounds are, apparently, about 9,200 years old, making them the oldest known manmade structures in the western hemisphere.  A friend from the New Orleans Geological Society attended a similar talk by Professor Ellwood last year, and he said it was very good.

Looking ahead to 2020, our annual Meet and Greet Pizza Party is in the planning phase. This party is typically in late January and serves a similar purpose to the Fall Barbecue—to promote fellowship, friendship, and networking within the society.  We’ll have more details at the luncheon.  See you there!

Best regards,


Trevor Casper
