CLOSING COMMENTS

Fair season has started for yet another year. I always enjoy this time of the year. Not only because it is the summer, but because it gives us a chance to take our birds to various locations and show them to people who may otherwise never see purebred poultry and pigeons. I heard several people comment at the recent show in Murray River that they had never seen so many different kinds of birds; and Murray River is not a big show!

As you can see above, I made a recent trip to Lachute, Quebec, to show at their local fair. It is several years since I last showed there. It was nice to be back. They really appreciated that I showed there.

Old Home Week is quickly coming up. As I mention every year, we need help to set up and tear down. Like other events, Old Home Week depends on volunteers to make this happen. It is discouraging when people who can help, even for a little while, just pack up and bail out. Thankfully there are those who realize the need to help out and for this, they are greatly appreciated. If you are physically able, please stay and help tear down the show!

Trevor MacDonald,

Editor
