September Club Meeting

Thanks to Susan and Fred Chelf, our hosts for the September meeting on Sunday the 8th. The topic of discussion will be “Selecting and Purchasing Koi for the Pond.” As many of you know hobbyists are faced with more complicated decisions in view of the re-emergence of Koi Herpes Virus. How does one minimize the risk of introducing new koi to the pond? What are the sources for reliable information?

There will be important business to discuss following the loss of our club founder. We hope everyone will come out for this meeting.

More information will be sent out this week about the meeting. Check back here too for updates.

Our June Meeting

Rain did not stop Dori and David Pereyra from hosting the Pondhoppers at their pond and home in Morriston. Despite the rain we had a good turn out. Our thanks to Dori and Dave.

Ed Kellar opened the meeting for officer nominations. Joe was voted in as the new president and David Locasio will work with Don in the Treasurer office. Thanks to Shirley Stone for staying on as our VP and to Ed for maintaining the club library. It was announced that the Hardcastles have left the koi and pond hobby. They will be missed as well as their contributions to the club and to the hobbies of koi and goldfish keeping.

The meeting topic for discussion centered around pond keeping during the warmer months here in our area. Thanks to all for your questions and tips for a successful summer pondwise.

Our next meeting will be in September. Details about the meeting will be sent out to members and posted here on the website and on our FB page. Guests and prospective members are welcome to attend. Please send a note to Joe if you would like to be placed on our mailing list.
