The Great Plains Chapter of AU's First Annual Darwine Mixer was attended by nearly 70 guests on February 12th at River City Brewing Company! Our featured speaker, Wichita State University Evolutionary Biologist Dr. Maryliz Jameson, gave an excellent presentation on Charles Darwin's many contributions to science and humanity. We thank her immensely for her time and expertise! Tentative second guest speaker, Wichita State University Professor of History and Philosophy of Science & author of God, The Devil, & Darwin: A Critique of Intelligent Design Theory, Dr. Niall Shanks, was unable to attend due to ill health. The appetizer buffet served by River City Brewing Company was excellent (and plentiful!) and the Charles Darwin birthday cake provided by Krista Wassinger looked great and was delicious! Photos from the First Annual Darwine Mixer have been posted in our Image Gallery as well as on the Great Plains AU Facebook page, so please check them out!
