PROGRAM: The Remarkable'Reptiles by Jim Gerholdt Jim Gerholdt is a founding member of MHS. He has been doing educational programs on reptiles for many years. This talk will be the program that Jim nonnally presents to the public. H~ will use a number of live animals and artifacts. 'This "Will be a good chance to see the proper way way of . handling animals for public demonstrations. Bring the whole family and lots of questions. CRITTER OF THE MONTH: Favorite Critter is the traditional critter for the March meeting. Let's see if we can set a record for the most critters at a meeting.
Elections will be held at the March meeting. We will vote for officers for the coming year as well as on whether to accept the revised constitution. Candidate profiles appear in this newsletter.
Upcoming Programs Do you have any ideas about programs you would like to have? Maybe you would be willing to give one. Share your thoughts about this with John Meltzer.
Highlights of Last Month's Program At the February meeting, the annual MHS White Snake Sale was held. The meeting turnout was a bit low and there were fewer items than in past years (probably because the cream of the crop went to the auction at the Midwest Herp Conference). We s1ill raised a nice sum of $384.25. Thanks to all of the members who purchased items. Be sure to start collecting now for next year's sale. Keep it ~ mind when you visit garage and estate sales. We must have this down to a science because everything went extremely smooth and efficiently. Thanks to all who helped wi1h organizing and running it including Del Jones, Marilyn Brooks, Greg Kvanbek, Joe Matzke, Bill Moss, and John and Ruth Meltzer.
Help a Hapless Help There were no adoptions at the February meeting due to the White Snake Sale. Anyone with animals to go up for adoption in March should contact Fred Bozvay prior to the meeting.

Board Meeting The meeting was l1.tld on February 2 at the home of Ann Porwoll. The meeting was called to order by John Moriarty at 7: 16 PM. In attendance were Fred Bosman, Liz Bosman, Fred Bozvay, Marilyn Brooks, Dennis Daly, Bruce Delles, Glen Jacobsen, Vence Jimerson, Nanette Jimerson, Greg Kvanbek, John Meltzer, Ruth Meltzer, John Moriarty, Bill Moss, Ann POlWoll, Mary Ann Waldorf, and Jo Anne Wetherell. The Secretary's minutes were read and accepted. 76 people attended the general meeting.
Treasurer's Report Profit from the White Snake Sale was $384.25. The annual audit has not yet been done. President's Report Membership in MHS has reached an all-time high of 217. This is a 路count of memberships, not members. John presented information on the total volunteer hours and the group decided to give mugs to those with the most hours. In the future, committee chairs will keep a log of member volunteers at MHS events. Questions in regard to the Conant Symposium have been answered. A donation of $150. will be made. The nominations for office were discussed. Bruce Haig and Liz Bosman will make up ballots. Vice President's Report Jim Gerholdt will speak in March as well as the election of officers. No speaker is set for April.
Old Business Membership rates were again discussed. Printing and mailing of newsletters costs $12.60 per year per membership. Bulk mail will decrease the total cost by $500-600 per year. The last increase in membership rates was in 1985. Several路 alternatives were discussed. A motion to change rates was made, seconded and passed with one vote opposed. The new rates will be announced in the newsletter and go into effect March 1, 1991. Possible fund raising projects were discussed. These included sales of a commissioned limited edition art print, accept paid advertising in the newsletter, and sales of books and dry stock. More details are needed before a decision is made. New Business A motion passed to purchase a new book, Husbandry of Pythons and Boas. This passed. Round Table Dennis-requested clarification on what to do when memberships come in at the old rate. A policy on this was estabHshed. He also mentioned that the new membership brochure should have the new prices.Ann Porwoll said good-bye after serving 9 1/2 years on the board. Jo Anne discussed the progress on the new membership brochure. Several of the committees ideas were discussed. The board would like to get quotes for printing of 500, 1000, and 2000. She also said that their were two errors in the Treasurer's Report as published in the newsletter. A correction will be printed. It was mentioned that Brenda Bell (an out of state member) is working to establish a new herp society and has requested information. Marilyn said that by not using the downtown Minneapolis Post Office, it should take an additional half day delay for newsletters. She would prefer to use her local Post Office for convenience. This was agreed on. The meeting was adjourned at 9:45 PM and refreshments were served.
MHS Newsletter, Vol. Xl, No.2
Dues路 Increase The MHS Board after much disCussion has decided to raise the membership dues. The' new rates are $ 15.00 for a basic membership (individual and family), $ 25.00 for institutions (nature centers, zoos), $30.00 for contributing and $60.00 for sustaining. The reasons for the dues increase is the loss of our rodent supply which brought in over $ 1200.00 a year. We also ran a deficit last year that was offset by the Midwest Herp Conf. We will not be hosting the Midwest for the next 5 years. A current one year membership costs over 13.00 just for newsletter printing and postage. The dues increase should bring in approximately $800.00 to 1000.00 per year. This will offset the loss of the rodent sales. We will also be shifting to bulk mail for the newsletter. This move should save us another $ 700.00 per year. We are still working on new fundraising ideas so that we can <x>ntinue to grow and support various herp projects. Anyone with fundraising ideas should contact a board member. The board hopes that we will not have to raise dues again for another five years. John Moriarty soon to be past president
Refreshments Refreshments at last month's meeting were brownies provided by the Yank family and cookies by Jane Hain. Thanks for the scrumptious stuff.
Mary Ann Waldorf is the refreshment chairperson. If you would to provide refreshments for a meeting be sure to notify Mary Ann in advance. Please see her at the meeting or give her a call at (612) 699-0475.

1990 Volunteers MHS keeps growing because of the work of volunteers. Without volunteers there would be no one to serve on the board, hold an office, chair a committee, run elections, run the library, produce and mail newsletters, answer ques1ions, bring refreshments or handle adoption animals. We also would not be able to get a larger library case, put on the Midwest Herp Conference, provide handson displays, write care sheets, do the State Fair exhibit, and provide other activities for members and the public. A total of 65 members put in over 600 hours of volunteer 1ime for MHS. This

MRS Members Give Cub Scout Program by Bill Moss On February 5th, MHS gave a reptile and amphibian program for the armua1 Blue and Gold Cub
Scout Banquet in South St. Paul. We brought along with us a Solomon Island Skink, Indigo Snake, Burmese Python, Boa Constrictors, White's Tree Frogs, Mexican Burrowing Python, Leopard Tortoise, and a Common Iguana.. Things got slightly crazy from time to time (the kids were all grouped around on the floor, directly in front of us) but overall the program went well. At the end of the show we raffled off a 16 foot Burmese Python shed skin and then did a brief hands-on. The Scoutmasters expressed their gratitude to MHS for the time and effortwe put in to help make the banquet a memorable one. Many thanks go out to Bruce and Nancy Haig, Drew Newman, and Fred and Liz Bosman for taking the time on a Tuesday evening to help promote reptiles and amphibians as wen as MHS. We already have a couple of invitations to do Earth Day Hands-On programs. The onlypossible way for us to do multiple programs is to have a good sign-up of volunteers. Mark your calendars for April 21 and volunteer to come out. We need you. Further details will be available in future newsletters and at meetings as April gets closer.

o- 7 points - You're a budding herper. You've boughtsome books, met some people, and asked your flSh market if his supplier uses T.E.D.s (turtle excluder devices). You've endured the heckle of your friends about "your snake club" meetings and are beginning to understand the importance of things such as captive propagation. 7 - 14 points - You are an intermediate herper.
