Upcoming Meeting of the Ontario Purple Martin Association

Hello fellow Martineers!
The Ontario Purple Martin Association’s first meeting of this new year is just around the corner:
Saturday, February 17 (9:00 am) …..   Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens, Ruthven.
Please note that we are in the “Cactus Room” this time.    Go in the direction of the “Willow Room”, but turn right in the main hallway and you will see a similar wooden structure which is the Cactus Room.   
There are a few things to let you know about this meeting:
…… We are excited to have Jeremy Bensette scheduled as our guest speaker.    Jeremy grew up in Leamington and realized at a young age that his lifetime calling would take him towards nature somehow.     Check out his wonderful blog   http://jeremybirder.blogspot.ca, and get to know him a little!    
…… Paul Hamel has served back-to-back terms as the Chairperson of the OPMA.    His term is up as of our February meeting, and we invite everyone to give consideration to stepping into this important role.
…… The OPMA will be holding an Ontario “Martinfest” in July 2018.    We are excited about this inaugural event and the possibility that it could grow into a successful yearly endeavour to draw people into our conservation efforts as they learn about this beautiful people friendly bird.    At our meeting, we will be presenting our plans, and welcoming input from all of you as well !
…… Our Treasurer takes annual dues ($20) at our February meeting.    Members who are not able to attend have until the April meeting to pay their yearly dues and stay on our email list for meeting notifications and newsletters. 
……. At our April meeting, we will be doing 2 draws.    All members who have paid their 2018 membership fee by the April meeting date 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 February 19th !
Mary Wilson
