For those not on social media, I’m passing along a very nice memorial video that was created by Cal Academy to honor Norm Penny.

Hi Floyd,


I'm sorry that I won't be at ESA or ECN in Orlando or I would have been happy to present something about Norm Penny.  However, our staff have just today completed a video about Norm that is listed in the message below that I forwarding to you.  This will be running on our public floor and our Academy website, but if there is any chance to present this short video anytime during the ECN meeting, please feel free to do so.


Have a great meeting!

Hi all,


I just posted our video on Norm:

Thanks for your help with this and feel free to share it out! I'll get it captioned and Laurel will likely post it on the Academy's Facebook and Twitter accounts next week.


Thanks again!
