September Meeting Date, Time and Location Change
September 19, 2021 – Sunday, 3:00PM – 5:00PM
Our regular meeting place, Raymond G. Sanchez Community Center, still requires everyone to wear a face mask while in the building. This creates a safety hazard around parrots. Some parrots react very aggressively to masks interpreting them as a threat. Hence the risk of getting bitten or attacked is greatly increased.
We are concerned for everyone’s safety and the comfort of our parrots. Therefore, we will meet again at a private residence which does not fall under the face mask edict. Please refer to the September 2021 issue of Birdy Bytes (under the Media/Newsletters tab) for how to RSVP for the meeting and obtain the meeting place address.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
The September meeting topic will be Planning Subsequent Care for Your Birds When You No Longer Can. Our club Vice President, Dorothy Newbill, will present information and tips on this topic. Planning for your bird’s care is essential for everyone’s estate planning to ensure your wishes are followed. Having this information and making plans before you need it can help smooth the transition for your pets to a new home when that time comes.
The Next General Meeting
The next general meeting date, place and program depend on what type of COVID restrictions are in place. Information will be posted on this page when it becomes available.
Thank you for your interest.
