WAES Meeting: November 9, 2019 // 7pm – 9pm

Our speaker this month is a popular favorite of ours, Madeleine Franco, who used to live in Utah and was very active with WAES. She now lives in Las Vegas and carries on what we started with rescue work down there, and also speaks regularly at parrot conventions. We are fortunate to have her back for visits and to speak to us as well. Her topic for the meeting will be what to do about a parrot that wants to have a sexual relationship with you, which can happen quite easily, and for many obvious reasons is a bad thing for both of you. So you will not want to miss this meeting!

We will also be having a board meeting at 6:30 before our regular meeting. All board members please attend if at all possible. The topic of discussion will be the crisis in our rescue committee. Specifically, a few people have been doing all the work, especially Audrey, and Audrey has had enough. She is retired now and wants to enjoy her retirement without having to run all over the state doing rescue work, for which I do not blame her. It appears we have no one to take over for her. I would, but I live in a no-pet rental townhome and because the rescue director will often have to provide temporary shelter for a bird until a foster home is found, I can’t do that. And so far no one else is able to do it either. So we are having a board meeting to ponder our future in rescue. All members are welcome/encouraged to attend the board meeting and offer suggestions or volunteer to become or assist the rescue chairman but we have to do something. So see you November 9th!!
