A reminder that the January meeting of NEAPS will be this Saturday, Jan 21st, from 1-3pm. This month's meeting will cover basic trimming and planting skills used in creating a successful aquascape. Saturday's meeting, along with Feburary's meeting topic, will prepare all of us for the big Demo setup at Ned's Fish Factory (March) where we can practice our new skills. Also, this month we will hold nominations and elections for club officers and new members will be introduced. This is an excellent time for anyone interested to join and help build a strong local orginization.
The meeting will be held at our regular meeting location, Fish Frenzy, Main Street in Indian Orchard, Mass. They have a new phone number, 1-413-543-2575. Directions and a map can be found at our website, www.ne-aquaticplants.com
Lets start the new year strong. There will be plenty of free plants for trading and cheap merchandise provided by our sponsors. As always, there will be lots of free info from experienced aquatic gardners.
Now is also the time to share your suggestions regarding future meeting topics. We are a member run orginization whose real purpose is to educate and introduce new people to the planted aquarium hobby. NEAPS is here for all of its members so please, let us know your ideas. Whether they concern meeting topics, club orginization or member involvment, your ideas are important to us.
