YPS Newsletter April 2017

From Editor’s Desk

The summer has already started and it is predicted that this year it will be too hot. As YPS members are all nature lovers, we request you to put up some bowl of water in your terrace for the birds and small animals. This will provide them a great relief. These summer months, most of the places will be dry and hence, we are not seeing much of insects and butterflies during our outings.

As YPS Hall on Nrupathunga road is difficult to reach, we made alternate arrangements to hold the programmes for April at Venkatappa Art Gallery. Please note that the programs will be on SUNDAYs and will start at 5:30PM instead of 6:30PM.

Membership of all Individual Members who joined before October have expired on March 31st. Thanks to all those who have renewed. Members who have not renewed can renew till April 30th after which membership will cease. Payment for renewal is online and easy. Please renew at the earliest.

All members are cordially invited to the TNA Perumal Judging and Exhbition. Please find program details below and on the website.
