September Meet 'n Greet 2009

By: Linda P., Tuesday September 15, 2009

Our first meeting of the new season is traditionally a Meet and Greet meeting. It was a night to catch up on old acquaintances and to meet new members. Carole and Marney were busy at the sign up table, signing up members for the coming year.

The executive members sat at the head table and Denise introduced us. We talked about our birds and about our jobs for the coming year. Jo-Anne made a great poster about volunteering,complete with pictures from past events. We all agree that it is fun to volunteer at events. You can bring your birds and talk to the public and or sell items at our booth. Our club benefits from it all.

We had a candy guess (thanks, Morry, for guessing the amount of candy pumpkins, they are very tasty). We had a great raffle, a swap table and as usual our buffet was great and it is only a tooney for all you can eat. Thanks Janet, for all your hard work in setting up, preparing, and closing up the buffet table. And a thank you to Paul for sharing in some duties.

We had an impromptu discussion on biting birds. It is wonderful to know that if any member has an issue with a bird, there are always others who try to assist. Just ask and we are there.? If there is anything anyone would like to discuss or implement at our meetings, please do not hesitate to inform any executive member. We are looking forward to another great year, being members of the York Region Parrot Club.
