Thank you!

Dear MAKC Members,

I would like to personally thank Dr. Dick Hammerschlag for inviting the Club to the Aki Matsuri Festival.

I would like to extend my appreciation for the great work done by Alan Mickelson, South Chapter Vice President, and Sarah Johnson, MAKC Webmaster, at the U.S. National Arboretum Aki Matsuri Festival.

We had some long distance helpers from the Long Island Chapter, Ray and Cheryl Kelly who traveled all the way to D.C. to help out!

Terri Janas from Blue Ribbon Koi was also on hand to help out with all questions koi.

I would also like to thank the members of Hudson Valley Koi and Water Garden Chapter Outreach Committee, Frank and Peggy Almquist, Cheryl Benken, Bernie Carroll and John Remington, for designing the MAKC Flyer that was handed out at the Festival.


Jo Mead

MAKC President
