Hi Everyone
I’d like to wish all the moms in the Club a Happy Mother’s Day.  The sun is out, so let’s enjoy the day.
Just want to remind everyone the meeting is Saturday , May 20, 2017 at our home at 1:00.  Judi and I will be auctioning some of our fish, with 100% of the money raised going to the club.
Should be fun, with great deals to offer for some koi.
Robert Mahler will be coming to the meeting, I asked him to do a bonsai demonstration, and he agreed to do that…the tree he works on will be for sale.
There will be lots of food and drinks, so we need to know who is attending so we have an accurate head count and not run out of food!
Thanks and see you all Saturday!
