December 2012 - Christmas Party!

By: Margot and Linda, Tuesday December 18, 2012

The 2012 York Region Parrot Club Christmas party was a fun time for all! Steve Kuehl our president hosted the event making sure everything ran smoothly. Delicious desserts were available for everyone to enjoy brought by club members and organized again by Mary-Ann - thank you! Bonnie Kuehl made the rounds with the candy cane pull where each tried their luck for the big prize and everyone was a winner with a free candy cane. Candy guess jars were available again with the winner guessing the closest number of candies in the jar without going over. As usual, there were bird toys available to win by raffle ticket.

Since the library was being disbanded, everyone enjoyed the opportunity to look over the collection of bird books and magazines and choose a few favorites to bring home. Thank you to Doug and Bonnie our librarians for your hard work over the past few years! Denise from Pet Paradise was available through the evening providing parrot grooming for club members - thank you Denise for sharing your skills with the club.

The highlight of the evening of course was the arrival of Santa with James Bai lending his photography skills to create fun Christmas portraits for everyone with their parrots. Photos were printed on site giving everyone a souvenir to take home. Of course, everyone also enjoyed the Santa gift bags with a parrot foraging box and bird salad provided by our vice-president Greg. Thank you Greg!

It was another great Christmas party with friends old and new - thank you to everyone for coming out! Have a Merry Christmas and see you soon in the New Year!
