Big thank you to Ron and Annette Bishop for their program on Axolotls; we had such a great turn out at our November meeting. Let us know what programs you’d like to see in the future.
Our December meeting is a Holiday get together. Noel will be providing us with a game we can all participate in. We are providing a pizza and wing night for members. Please bring a non perishable food item for our Neighbour to Neighbour Food Drive. Sarah will be setting up a raffle table with donated items – these items do not need to be fish related. All money raised goes to Neighbour to Neighbour as well. It feels great to help out those less fortunate. Because of the festivities there is no Jar Show in December.
Our January program will be a workshop on Filters presented by Zenin from the KWAS club. Club elections will also take place. If you are interested in helping our club please come and speak with me or message me.
Our club is also hosting the 2017 Aquatic Expo at the Burlington Holiday Inn May 19 to 21. Our speaker line up includes Ian Fuller, Eric Bodrock, Regina Spotti, Lawrence Kent and Gerald Griffin. Vendors tables, auction, fish shows etc all weekend. Tell me what you’d like to see and help make it happen. Lots of information can be found on our site. PayPal is also set up on the site to make it easy to purchase your tickets.
Have a great Holiday!
Merry Christmas, Carla
I hope everyone had a great Halloween and is enjoying our mild Fall.
Fall auction season may be winding down, but November is going to be an exciting month for H&DAS!
Our November meeting will take place Thursday, November 12th at 7:30pm at The Church of the Resurrection at the corner of Garth and Mohawk. Randy Seufert, from the Tropical Fish Club of Erie County, will be presenting on Livebearers. I know I’m excited to see what Randy can teach us about this often underappreciated group of fish!
Saturday, November 14th is the day we’ve all been waiting for!
H&DAS is proud to be presenting Dinner Speaker Anton Lamboj at the Waterdown Legion. Anton has worked as a lecturer at the University of Vienna since 1998 and has made field trips in many countries to study fish. The evening will feature two presentations by Anton (on wild Bettas and West African Cichlids), a potluck dinner, Neighbour-2-Neighbour food drive, door prizes, a betta auction and more! Tickets are only $15, see Carla or Jess at the meeting, or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
See you soon,
There’s a chill in the air and I think Fall has finally arrived!
Hopefully the sunny weather will continue for our Fall Auction on Saturday, October 3rd at the Waterdown Legion. Doors open at 8am for registration and the auction will begin at 10am. Bring cash and a few friends!
Thanks to our own Catherine Salmon for kicking off our season with her talk on bettas! Our October meeting, Thursday the 8th, we’ll have Jae Hovius who will be showing us how to close our ponds. Hopefully this winter won’t be too hard on our fish! Be sure to get to the meeting and signed in early, we will be starting at 7:30pm sharp with a very special members draw.
Our evening with Anton Lamboj is fast approaching! On Saturday November 14th we’re back at the Waterdown Legion for a potluck dinner and two presentations. See Carla for tickets for this world class speaker, or e-mail email@example.com. It should be a night to remember!
See you soon,
I hope everyone had a great summer. September has arrived and a new season begins! This fall is packed with all sorts of local aquarium events!
Our season begins with our regular meeting, Thursday September 10th at 7:30pm. H&DAS’s own Catherine Salmon will be sharing her experiences raising Bettas with us. It will be great to dig a little deeper into many hobbyist’s first fish!
Saturday, October 3rd we’ll once again be at the Waterdown Legion for our massive Fall Auction! Bring your fish, plants, and used equipment (in good working condition) and some cash for your purchases. As always there will be food and drink available for purchase, including Carla’s famous chili dogs! We depend on our members to volunteer as chit writers and runners, so please let Carla know of you can help. Doors and registration open at 8am, auction begins at 10am. Don’t forget to check the back of the bulletin for other area auctions!
This year our club is excited to have Anton Lamboj as a dinner speaker Saturday, November 14th. The evening will feature two talks, a potluck style dinner and more! Tickets are $15, see Carla for more information.
See you soon,
