President's Message! – February 2014
By Jean Jahr
Happy New Year everybody! In December the Camelia Koi Club gathered at Umeko’s Buffet for our final get together in 2013. After lots of delicious food and camaraderie we thanked our outgoing officers and welcomed the new. Sworn in for the 2014 and 2015 was Mike Tsuchida as Vice President, Carol and Doug Porter as Directors and our gracious Georgia Vonk who will serve another term as Treasurer. Thank you all!
Our January meeting will be held at the home of Sam and Kami at 4018 Wakehurst Ct. Roseville, CA 95747. Board of Directors starts off at noon and regular session begins at one. (Well, probably after we share food together…)
This is a small lined pond that the owners started building about two years ago. We first visited here last August. Like many ponds it is a changing work in progress. I wonder what has happened since since we last saw it……
Our main business at this meeting is to set the meeting calendar for this year. Where we will meet and finalize the dates. Do you want to host a meeting? Come put your bid in for a date.
We will also be learning about our web page. Bring your laptop or whatever you use for web surfing if you would like. Sam is going to hook us up to his big television monitor so we can have a “show and tell” lesson in technology. There are a lot of very good articles and other information on our website.
MEETING LOCATIONS SOUGHTIdeas are being sought for meeting locations. A priority will be a pond never seen before or not visited for a number of years. Send me a note anytime. I am always interested in hearing from you.
There are several benefits available to our club members. For example, access to our Koi Health Advisors, pond rescue, monthly meetings where guest speakers discuss topics that will add to your knowledge on Koi husbandry, a wide knowledge bank on how to build a successful pond, opportunities to visit many ponds for ideas and advice, and of course the social aspect of meeting friendly folks with similar interests. Additionally, you will enjoy barbeques, Koi events, discounts from local vendors and much more. Our members' ponds vary in size from a few hundred gallons to over 20,000 gallons, to small lakes. We can help make your pond more enjoyable. Thank you for visiting us.
