The BAS:  Past, Present and Future.

I know that to most people a fish club is a fish club, a fun interesting gathering of like-minded people.  It’s fun, it’s supposed to be.  The BAS is not just any fish club… “The History of the Boston Aquarium Society” by: George and Frieda Meserve, printed in installments in the Daphnian (BAS’s old magazine) is worth reading; just start and you won’t be able to stop.

BAS’s present is you and it is right now.  Not a particularly good year, but something the BAS has survived already one.  Read about it, thanks to the Meserve’s.  I did and came away with a new-formed pride, a felling of belonging and some sense of responsibility to see that it keeps going, especially through these dark times.  Some of us old timers remember decades ago a very active BAS.  We were a regular at the Boston Spring Flower Show.  One year our display won First in our Class and Third overall.  We had a Newsletter, A Yearly Show, etc.

Hope to see you all at Monday nights meeting.
