Hello reptile enthusiasts!
We held our Annual General Meeting on November 16th, so here is a small update for you all:
The board would like to wish Chris, Brandon, Kelsey, and Fiona luck in the future, and would like to say thank you for everything you have done while being on the BCRC board.
We have a board of 7 this year, with Dee being President, Jude as Secretary, and Sean as Treasurer. Members at Large will consist of Derek, Val, Meghan, and Renee, who will all be just as active as the prime board members.
On a side note, attendance was rather low for the AGM. Please, consider coming to the next one. We love to hear from everyone, and this is the best place for your voice to be heard. For those that did attend, we promise that you were heard, and we thank you for your contributions and discussions.
The BCRC Spring Expo is coming! Keep your calendars open for lots of fun stuff, and bring out the whole family!
This event is happening on Saturday, April 21st from 10 am – 5 pm, and Sunday, April 22nd from 10 am – 4 pm at the Abbotsford Exhibition Park in the Ag-Rec Centre (32470 Haida Drive).
Along with our variety of vendors, we will also have a table set up with BCRC clothing and wares. There will also be raffle prizes and a food truck. The Kid Zone will have games, contests, and activities. And, of course, Irwin the mascot will make an appearance as well.
It’s always wonderful to hear about people’s love for any kind of animal, but some people really stand out above others.
In 2016, a new rescue for reptiles and small animals, called CPR Animal Rescue Society, was founded in Surrey, B.C. They have really jumped in with both feet. They are non-profit, and are a registered Society.
CPR’s Mission Statement is simple, and sweet:
1) To rescue, rehabilitate and rehome pet animals.
2) To provide long term care for rescued animals that are not appropriate to rehome.
3) To work to improve the quality of life for animals through education, raising awareness and promoting healthy choices for pets.
Let’s all wish them luck, and give our support to the CPR family. Without groups like them, the pets they take in would never get a second chance.
