Hi Everyone and Happy Holidays!!!

I’d like to thank Larry Johnson for his presentation on Lake Malawi at our last meeting. After my weekend trip to Ohio for the Ohio Cichlid Convention I have finally decided to join the cichlid folks and I’m going to convert my 150 tank to cichlids. I can’t believe it myself but I’m ready for a change. If you have any rock, I sure needs lots so please bring it to the meeting.
Tis the season so I’m hoping to see everyone at our meeting on Thurs Dec 13. Its our annual Christmas meeting where I think we have a great time mingling, playing some games, (I’m sure Noel has something special set up for us) raise some money thru our fish draw table (chinese auction) and run a successful food drive for Neighbour to Neighbour. Its very rewarding delivering whatever the club has raised thru the food drive and draw tables. We will still have our regular draws and auction at the meeting. And if you’ve been good all year we might have a treat for you too.
January is election month. If you are interested in joining the executive, please let me know. Everyone is welcome. We are always looking for some new ideas.
The Home Show is coming up quickly too. Get your tanks ready for picture taking in middle to late March. I’m also trying to put a presentation together on ponds for the June meeting. If you have any pictures of your pond and yard, please send them to me. Thanks!!!

Hope to see you all at the Christmas meeting!
Happy Holidays
