Ontario Purple Martin Association Meeting

Hello Purple Martin People!

Saturday, April 21st (9:00 am) is our next meeting of the Ontario Purple Martin Association, at Orchard View Golf Course in Ruthven.

With our winter coats still at the ready, it is hard to believe it is April, let alone that Purple Martins have managed to arrive back in small numbers to some of their homes! They are amazing birds, but it would be so nice if the weather wasn’t posing so many difficulties for them (and their landlords) every spring it seems. At this point it looks likely that we’ll be able to do a feeding demonstration at our meeting!

Just a reminder that at this meeting we will be doing 2 draws, as follows. All members who have paid their 2018 membership fee by or at the April meeting will be eligible for both these draws. Members do not have to be present to win.

* A draw for a one-year membership to the PMCA (paid for by the OPMA). Membership provides discounts for purchases from the PMCA online shop, as well as 4 issues of the beautiful Purple Martin Update magazine. Winner will receive an immediate membership to the PMCA if he/she is not already a PMCA member, OR will receive a membership for the following year if he/she is already a PMCA member.

* A draw for a 1-year membership to the OPMA (membership fee waived). The winning member will receive free membership for 2019.

We hope to see you on the 21st !
