Dear Fellow Members.

The sun is out, the grass is green, the fish are spawning, and Life is Good !!!

Over the last few years, we have had some fantastic speakers at our General Meetings. Our April speaker was Mr Zenin Skomorowski. His presentation on Loaches was very informative and easy to understand. We appreciate the fact that Zenin drove for two hours, each way, to accommodate us. Mr Jerry Draper, owner of The Tropical Fish Room in Brantford, donated some Loaches for Zenin , to give to us. Thank you very much Zenin and Jerry for your kind gestures.

Our Spring Auction was a great success!!. A show of hands indicated that many people came from out of town. An educated guess is that we had over 100 people buying and /or selling items. We have several people to thank for for this large turn-out. I don't want to name all of these people, in fear of missing someone, but I do thank them for the effort put into advertising. I guess Advertising Works ! Hopefully we impressed the audience enough to have them return for our Fall Auction in September.

As usual, Mr Ron Bishop did a swell job selling our stuff. This is the first time in history, I believe, that we had no " No-Sales". Ron's lovely wife, Annette, helped us out a lot by being a runner. A special Thank You goes to Mr Jae Hovius, representing Hagen, our largest contributor. Not only was Jae available to answer our questions, but he was a runner as well. And then we have Jason Salisbury and Henry Haveman. These two guys drive many miles to volunteer their help over and over. Thank you guys.

The Raffle did very well as did the Kitchen. The whole Event was a fantastic endeavor and success. Thank you to all involved! You make me proud to be your President. I repeatedly say, and will continue to say that We are a small but very effective Club, and you once again, proved me right.

We not only take from, but also give back to this community. A few years ago we donated a 85 gallon tank, complete, to the St Josephs Hospice in Sarnia. We maintain this tank, and are very proud of it. Last year we made a sizable monetary donation to the Hospice, and in May we plan on making a financial donation to the Bluewater Anglers and Salmon Hatchery.

At our Fall Auction, we will ask people to bring a non-perishable food item and /or a monetary donation in support of a local Food Bank. We are doing so much better than some others and I think we should help out a little.

I have not mentioned the many businesses that donated items to be sold at our Auction. You will see a list in this issue, but Thank You to all of these people.

Respectfully submitted;

Jack V
