Santa Clara Valley Canary & Exotic Bird Club
December 9, 1973
Pot-luck: 1 P.M. Meeting 1:45 P.M.
Santa Clara High School Cafetorium
corner of Washington & Bellomy Sts., Santa Clara
With show time just two weeks away, I hope you have all your birds picked to show and you have all your cages painted and ready to go. Don't forget this year we're trying to build-up our Display Division. Using a live bird, how about decorating a cage and entering it in the show. Some real nice trophies will be awarded.
We are still in need of food donations for the show. If you didn't sign-up for anything, we are still in need of sweet potatoes, jello salads and pies. Contact Ruby Dubois. Also, if you haven't donated a blue chip book, please bring something of equal value to put on the SHOWRAFFLE TABLE.
At the meeting this month, reminders of how to set-up your cages for the show & final preparations for the show in general will be made.
At our last meeting, the club members elected the following officers who will take over at the Jan. meeting:
|Pres. Richard Topper||Treas. Leonard Quieto|
|Vice-Pres. Allan Thompson||Newsletter Chuck Arella|
|Sec. Charlotte LeDoux||Show Manager Joe Gordon|
TRY IT, YOU'LL LIKE IT!!!!
At the request of many of our members, below is the receipe for the “Apple-nut Cake” I have taken to some of the pot-lucks:
|4 cups apples (diced)||1 cup nuts (chopped)|
|2 cups sugar||2 cups flour|
|½ cup oil||2 tsp. vanilla|
|2 eggs||1 tsp. cinnamon|

|Use (9x13x2 dish)|
Mix apples, sugar & oil and set aside. Beat eggs with vanilla, add to apples. Sift dry ingredients, add to egg mixture, add nuts. Bake at 350º oven for about 45 min.
Please try to make this meeting, we need your help and cooperation.
