May 2013 - Toy Making Night

By: Margot B., Tuesday May 21, 2013

YRPC's annual toy making night proved to be a fun and productive evening for all. Ample supplies were provided by club members and executive - special thanks to Lucy Kupnicki and everyone who helped. With pictures of various parrot toy and perch ideas, everyone had free rein to draw on the available supplies and build toys to engage their parrots and provide foraging opportunities. Another successful raffle was held and James Bai was on hand to photograph everyone and with their parrot creations!

This meeting, Morry announced the new executive members, with some executives changing positions. Notably, vice president Greg will transition to program coordinator with the responsibility to organize the planned activities for meetings over the next year. Our long time president, Steve Kuehl will be stepping down - thanks Steve for all your hard work promoting the club and keeping events on track.
