Hi Everyone and Happy New Year

Wow, 2011 already.  That sure came quickly.  I hope everyone had a really nice Christmas and New Year Holiday Season.  I’d like to thank Noel N for his great Fish Rendition of Millionaire for our annual Christmas Party.  We had lots of success with raising funds and groceries for Neighbour to Neighbour.  Thank you all for your support and helping others during the holiday season. I’d like to thank the HDAS executive with their help in preparation for the party.  I think a good time was had by all.

January’s meeting on Thursday the 13th is the HDAS executive election night.  If you are interested in running for a position, please let me know.  The program for January will be presented by Bob Wright.

Our Spring Auction is on Sunday, March 6th.  Please mark this date on your calendar and give the HDAS auction team a hand.  We are always looking for more help. Try selling some new or gently used items or maybe purchasing some items.  If you haven’t been to an auction, this is a good time to start.  The auction is at the Waterdown Legion.

The Brantford Tropical Fish Club is hosting the 2011 CAOAC Convention starting on Friday May 20 thru the long weekend Monday May 23. If you have never been to a tropical fish convention this is an ideal opportunity for you to go. Save your loose change or make a plan to attend.  There are many great speakers coming to the convention to keep us all educated in our hobby.  Stay posted for more information.

There are many ideas in motion for the 2011 year.  A new twist on the Home Show? Programs? 3rd Annual Pond Tour? How about a trip to the Toronto Zoo?  Let me know your ideas.

See you at the meeting.
