We had a very special event occur the day
of our Christmas party. Elizabeth Wells had a baby girl, Emylie.
We also had a wedding in December. Richard Rooker and Samantha Rubin
tied the knot. (1.1 Jaxherpers, as Manny called them) Photos of
the happy couple and the new baby appear elsewhere in this newsletter.
Those of you who deal with turtles of any kind, BEWARE! Some local
officials are trying to use an old (local) law to ensure that anyone
dealing with turtles has documentation that shows they are free
from salmonella. These officials have already struck a couple of
pet stores. Vic Morgan and Manny Granados are monitoring this situation
and will present any useful information they find at the next board
I would like to thank EVERYONE who worked so hard to make the Christmas
party a success! I would especially like to thank the board members
for their cooperation and enthusiasm for not only the Christmas
party, but for everything that has been important to the JHS. This
has made my job much easier. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and remember
the meeting is January 8th (second Wednesday). See you there.
