According to the website, BUZZLE.COM, “Seven has the highest probability of occurring as an addition when rolling dice. There are seven wonders of the ancient world. There are seven continents in the world. There are seven colors of the rainbow. There are seven days in a week. There are seven basic musical notes, namely, ‘do’, ‘re’, ‘me’, ‘fa’, ‘so’, ‘la’ and ‘te’. A ladybug commonly has seven spots. Most mammals’ necks have seven bones. Seven is also the number of digits in an American or a Canadian telephone number. “ Most significant of the number seven is it is how many seasons this will make for me being bat cave steward at The Eckert James River Bat Cave Preserve.

The Eckert James River Bat Cave Preserve will open this Thursday, May 17th at 6 P.M. (weather permitting). The bats usually leave or emerge for the night from the cave between 8:15-8:55 P.M. at this time of the year. Be sure to bring a flashlight and wear sturdy walking shoes because the seating area is about 1500 feet from the parking area. Seating is provided. This is a primitive area so there is no electricity, refreshments or restrooms. You will need to allow about 35 minutes drive time from downtown Mason to the preserve parking area.

Admission to the preserve is $5.00 for persons six years of age and older. For other information, please call the bat hotline at: 325-347-5970.

If you bring out your mom, your dad, your three children, your brother and your wife, there will be SEVEN people who will love you forever for giving them this wonderful chance to make memories!! See ya at the cave!
