May, June, July 2014 Events
May and June programs are rescheduled for the 2nd Saturday of the month.
Saturday, May 10th, Dr. Mark Mitchell will give a program at our usual location and time. Dr. Mitchell is a veterinarian from the Exotic Animal Department of the U of I College of Veterinary Medicine. You can count on an informative and interesting program.
This year, instead of Mike Hellweg coming to us to give a program, we're going to him. This is a great opportunity to see his setup and ask questions about his fish business. We have a special trip to Saint Louis planned for June 14th.
As usual, we are preparing for our summer auction. July 19th is the date to mark on your calendar. Be sure to bring plenty of fish, plants, accessories, etc. to sell. Don't forget to stay and look for great deals on new stock and supplies for your tanks and ponds.
