Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone had an amazing Holiday Season.

I just wanted to thank everyone who came out to our Christmas Party and helped us raise $1472 for Neighbor to Neighbor!

To Noel Nathaniel, a special thank you for organizing another fun game on Kahoot! It was nice to hear everyone laughing and enjoying themselves.

This month we have our own Larry Johnson speaking to us on Adventures in Malawi. Larry  was there recently and went diving for cichlids with his guests. Larry does take amazing underwater pictures that we will for sure see. The meeting is on Thursday January 12th at 7:30pm at the Church of Resurrection 435 Mohawk Rd W. In the basement in the hall room.

I just want to thank again our wonderful sponsors:

The Tropical Fishroom

Big Als Hamilton

Finest Pets

Planted Aquaria

Rainforest Pets and Reptiles.

Just make sure all members show your up-to-date membership cards to get your discounts.
