  • Members are reminded to return all sold Cash Draw tickets to the Spring Show on May 18. The draw will take place that afternoon. Even if you don’t sell any, PLEASE at least buy some for yourself and help support the club. If every member even bought one book, the raffle would turn a profit!
  • Your help is greatly appreciated and needed for the Spring Show. Set-up and tear-down require workers. Also, help is needed during the day of the show.
  • A reminder to those who have not yet renewed their memberships that you must renew your membership in order to remain on the active members list. Please send in your membership today.
  • WELCOME to the association is extended to Donna Corcoran of Campbellton.
  • Jeremy Ludyka and Trevor MacDonald recently showed at the Spring Show in Windsor, NS. Both had a number of good placings.
  • After months of planning, our Spring Show is once again only a matter of day away. Entries are up from last year which is encouraging. Also, it is good to see a number of exhibitors from off- Island once again supporting our show. We must always remember to thank them for coming.

    As always, we are in need to volunteers to assist with various things which go on at the show. This, of course, also includes the tear down.
    See you at the show.

    Trevor MacDonald,
    Editor
