June 2015 - Year End Social Potluck

By: James B., Tuesday June 16, 2015

The Year End Social potluck is always a great way to cap off another wonderful season with the York Region Parrot Club. Looking back on the 2014/2015 season, we learned a lot from talks by Dr. Evan Mavromatis from the Links Road Animal and Bird Clinic, and Dr. Markus Luckwaldt from Luckwaldt Mobile Veterinary Services which included microchipping, and a talk about cages for our birds. We helped our community by visiting the Revera Long Term Care home, having a booth in the Canada Day Celebrations at Fairy Lake in Newmarket, and participating in the Canadian National Bird Show. We made food for our feathered friends during Chop Night and helped enrich our parrots' activities by making toys. Finally, we also managed to have fun at our annual Meet and Greet, Christmas Party, and a visit by our friends at Hands On Exotics. We really packed in the excitement!

The executive for the 2015/2016 year was announced:

  • Treasurer: Morry Posner
  • Secretary: Stephanie Jackson
  • Social Convenors: Bonnie Kuehl, Steve Kuehl
  • Membership: Linda Posner
  • Caterer: Kim Harper Daynes
  • Webmaster: Lucy Kupniki
  • Photographer: James Bai
  • Website Blog: Margot Bai
  • Executive Members: Shayna Generoux, John Ryan, Debbie Thornhill, Audrey McDonough

There was no agenda except to feast on the potluck, buy a raffle ticket, and to socialize with our friends. We hope everyone has a terrific summer and we're looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall!
