Leuc from the Raptor Center at GUNG HO


The Raptor Center’s Bald Eagle died at the age of 35 this week. He was a special guest at a Merck event based on Gung Ho that we produced back in the ’90s…..

That Northwoods event filled the MCC Ballroom with live evergreens, marsh and forest plantings, Clyde Belecourt’s own tipi, a live beaver, the “Gift of a Goose” strutting around, the “Spirit of the Squirrel”, Native American student dancers from Heart of the Earth, and of course, Leuc the bald eagle from the Raptor Center overseeing it all.

We recreated a REAL Minnesota North Woods and served Native American food-although one of the student dancers was overheard saying the fry bread wasn’t very good because it was “made by a white man”. 🙂
