By Mrs. Renz
The Wise Owl was donated by my father, Scott Reekie.
The Wise Owl is made of ironwood and was handmade in Mexico.
My father brought it back after a vacation to the Mexican village of Kino, on the Sea of Cortez.
He was educated in Scotland. The grade school that he attended had a
Wise Owl award which was given for the above qualities.
This award was his idea! (Thanks, Dad!)
