Do You Like to Cook?

The only position not yet filled for this upcoming year is, some would say, arguably if not the most important, definitely the most popular person as the Hospitality Volunteer. If you enjoy to cook, not only do get to practice your art once a month but you do it with someone else’s money. If you would like to know more about this position, use the button below to contact Steven,the outgoing hospitality guru who has performed this role for the last couple of years. Thanks

Pond Sitters
You might be interested in a new idea that we are kicking around where as individuals, we can help out our fellow Ponders in times of need. Because maintaining a pond is fairly specialized, it is not easy to find someone to look after the pond if you as the pond owner, want to take a trip and be away for a few days. It would be doubly nice if you knew that person is also handy enough to make any small repairs that might be needed and it would certainly give you peace of mind during your absence.

NEXT MEETING.

NOTE: The next meeting of APS is on Monday, November 19 at the usual meeting place, Zilker Botanical Gardens. This is our Holiday Party and this year, we are going with a Mexican theme so wear your sombreros and come and party. Blue Santa will also be present to pick up the toys that our members will be bringing especially for the 12-14 year old bracket. Hope to see you there.

We are still looking for a Hospitality person. Are you interested in becoming the most popular person in the Austin Pond Society? If so, search out any of the current Officers at the meeting and put your name up or contact Nancy at parliamentarian@austinpondsociety.org . For more information on the job duties, contact Steven at hospitality@austinpondsociety.org

Austin Pond Society and Mayfield Park

Work on renovating two of the ponds at Mayfield Park has been completed and all of the ponds have been cleaned the plants repotted. Currently, all that remains is to perform ongoing maintenance work with the plants about every couple of weeks. All of the ponds have been restocked with Koi some of which are pretty big, thanks to our Fish Rescue Team.
