The August Picnic
The Greater Akron Aquarium Society Picnic and Fishy Exchange Will Be on Friday, August 9 2024 (Location TBD)
The August 2024 GAAS meeting will be a party with our fish-head friends, no speaker or other real program. Bowl show and equipment raffle like usual. There will be no BAP/HAP auction in August, but if you’d like to turn in a spawn or plant, then that will be part of our “Fishy Exchange.” The “Exchange” is for fish hobby related items. Just bring in a bag (or two or more) of fish you’ve raised or have extra of, a new piece of equipment or decoration or some plants or live fish food and add it to the gift table, get a ticket and when your number is called take something else home! It’s that easy and fun, so we hope to see everyone there on Friday, August 9, 2024, at 8:00 pm. This year, the location will not be at our regular location at Ritchie Shelter House, it will be at a location that is yet to be determined.
We will be having a catered meal this year. We are asking for a $5 donation per person.
