The August 24th monthly meeting for OAS features Dr. Paul Welch, one of our favorite avian veterinarians. The meeting starts at 2:00, but you can come socialize with us before and after Dr. Welch gives us information from the AAV conference, and answers those question or concerns we have about our pet birds.
Another reason to gather for this meeting is it's the last meeting before the Saturday, September 6 Indian Summer Bird Fair. We need all members to be ready to volunteer some time to help make this, the last show at Green Country Event Center, be one more outstanding event for the OAS. So think about the best time for you to be there to help, and what area you'd like to work. We will need people to help set up on Friday afternoon (pizza is the incentive for those who help with this project), MANY people all day Saturday between 8 and 6, and then to tear down after the show. Don't leave it to just the few Board and regular attending members. It's your bird club too. Participate, please.
Plan to gather at the Hardesty Library, 8316 East 93rd Street, Tulsa. See you there.
I created a new page for the bird fair, and for some reason it's not posting correctly. So, in order that vendors may download an application for the September 6 Fair, I'm posting the application here.
Sorry for the confusion.
Dr. Carol Best of Best Friends Veterinary Hospital is our speaker.
Don't miss the popular Dr. Best from Best Friends Veterinary Hospital as she teaches us Avian First Aid Techniques! Ever wonder what you would do if your bird chose a weekend or holiday to have an accident or illness? Come to our meeting tomorrow and find out.
Meet your fellow OAS members and guests at the Hardesty Regional Library, 8316 E 93rd St, Tulsa, OK. We start gathering at 1:30, and the short business meeting begins at 2:00. Then Dr. Best will let us know what we need to know for a bird-related emergency.
At this meeting we will also need to discuss who will do what at the September 6 Bird Fair. It is important that all members participate in producing this well attended, income-producing event. It's not fair that only a few hearty, yet very tired, members bear the full burden to put on this event twice a year. Think about how you can spend a couple hours helping with set-up, the raffle table, the club table, admissions or working with the vendors and clean-up. Every little bit helps and is appreciated.
See you - Tomorrow!! - Sunday, July 27.
"Be Prepared" is the motto of the Boy Scouts, but all pet bird owners should also be ready to help our feathered kids just as we do our human children. At the July 27, 2014 general meeting of the OAS, one of our favorite avian vets, Dr. Carol Best of Best Friends Veterinary, will help us prepare for those emergencies every bird owner dreads.
Come ready to take notes, because you'll want to get everything together BEFORE the emergency strikes.
See you at 1:30 on Sunday, July 27 at the Hardesty Library.
