Notes of interest:

November 18 (week) – Fall I.L.T. Vaccination

December 2 – NEXT MEETING & Christmas Social (Atlantic Vet College, 7:30. Use main entrance)

-CLUB ITEMS FOR SALE: T-shirts – $13.00 and Crests – $4.00. Contact the secretary for items. They make great Christmas gifts for the fancier in the family.

-A reminder that the December meeting will be followed by our annual Christmas Social. Members are asked to bring something for lunch (sandwiches, sweets, etc) to be served following the meeting.

-The Fall I.L.T. Vaccination application forms are enclosed with this month’s newsletter. If you have birds to be vaccinated, please fill out the form and forward it to me as soon as possible. Please note that this is ONLY for birds that were NOT done in the spring.

-Congratulations to the members who showed at the recent Nova Scotia Fall Classic. Island exhibitors did very well.

-Island members are once again showing poultry at the Royal Winter Fair. A report on the winnings at the Royal will appear in the December newsletter.

As I sit preparing this month’s newsletter, I am thinking of all the other things I have to get done before I leave for the Royal. At least I can scratch this off the list!

I am looking forward to attending the Royal once again. It is always good to see many of the friends whom I only see once a year. I am, of course, showing a few birds. We’ll have to wait and see how they will do.

The Maritime show season is over for another year. While we lost two regular shows this year, Souis and Pictou, our other shows continued on as in the past.

Don’t forget to send in your ILT forms if you have birds to be done. Also, you will need to have your Property Identification Form submitted to the Department of Agriculture in order to get birds done.
