The program this month will be "QUESTIONS & ANSWERS ON BREEDING SEASON". Now is the time to think about the birds you ware going to pair-up to get certain colors, get your breeding cages all set, shred your burlap for the nests and last but not least, I hope you have been getting your birds into breeding condition. If not, it's still not too late, come to the meeting & get more details.

The members of the club wish to extend their condolences to Mr. & Mrs. Dan Gama on the recent death of Dan's mother, Mrs. Sarah Gama.
Do you remember the windy night of Tuesday, Dec. 20th? I know Joe Gordon won't forget. The wind blew the top off his outside aviary and he lost 52 out of his 60 birds. What a sad sight that must have been!
Those bringing birds for the raffle this month are Mae & Roland Skirrow, Ruth & Glenn Mitchell & Nikkie McClatchie.
