June President’s Message


I hope you are enjoying the beginning of summer and that you and your family are doing well.


Many of you may have heard that our newsletter editor, Beth Murphy, has been quite ill. We are happy that she is improving and able to resume providing our newsletter for us. Thank you, Beth!


I am sorry to cancel our June 8 meeting. I will plan to hold a zoom Board meeting in July and then we will have a short club meeting at our July picnic.


Our club needs of two volunteer positions to be filled. I hope you will consider if you are able to help with either of them. One is the Club Secretary, who keeps minutes of our Club and Board meetings. This position is a member of our Board. The second need is for a Band Secretary. This person orders and distributes canary bands to our club members at the beginning of each year. It does not require a lot of time, but does take some coordination at the time the bands are distributed. Please let me know if you are be willing to help out with either of these needs.


Our Columbia Canary Club picnic will be on Saturday, July 20, 11:30 am at the Molalla Clark Park in Molalla, Oregon. Check the newsletter for more information on the park and location. Please bring a salad or main dish to share. Bring your own drinks. The club will provide paper plates and table service, cake and ice cream for dessert. You may also want to bring your own lawn chair. The park has picnic tables. I hope you will plan to come and enjoy our time together at the picnic.
