June 2014 - Year End Social

By: Margot B., Tuesday June 17, 2014

Our year end meeting in June consisted of a potluck and social. Falling on the same night as the tornado warnings, thunderstorms with heavy rains blew through the area around 6:30pm. Fortunately things cleared up and we had a good showing, though some stayed away. The potluck was excellent with samosas, meatballs, bean salad, fresh bread, chocolate cake and fudge among other offerings. It was a relaxing evening of visiting and enjoying each other's birds.

Independent pet store Tru Pet of Richmond Hill (on Yonge St near the Winners) was on hand with a collection of bird food and toys available for purchase. Tru Pet is one of the few retailers of the popular Harrison's parrot pellet line. Members are encouraged to come out on July 1st to Fairy Lake in Newmarket to support the YRPC booth at their annual Canada Day celebration starting at 11am. Due to the rising cost of the hall rental, family member dues are rising to $55 in the fall, though members opting to renew at the June meeting were able to renew for the old price of $50. Have a great summer everyone and we will see you in September to kick off the new season!
