Quotes Back in April I saw an add for Cichlid club meetings. I thought "how cool, we love fish" and encouraged my fiancee to attend. Much to my surprise I came home from work and found him playing with the biggest Jack Dempsey I had ever seen with a huge smile on his face. He had told me he went to a meeting an had meet great people and couldn't wait for the next. I went to the next meeting with him and was truly pleased to have met and been welcomed by everyone who I am proud to call friends but are really more like family. I look forward to every meeting and event and I am never disappointed. The knowledge I have gain from others in the hobby, wither they are newbies or old hands, has been invaluable. I wear my CCY shirt with pride and always get a chuckle at the question "there are fish clubs?" Yup there sure are and I am a proud member!! Quotes

Quotes Only sorry I missed two things this year.....the CCY anniversary party and the powerball lottery. Quotes

Quotes I first got into this hobby about 2 years ago. I started like most with guppies. I wanted to do more than that though. A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon this group on Facebook. I joined and was instantly impressed with the knowledge and kindness of all of the members. I went to my first meeting 3 months ago and was very nervous because I never met any of the members before. Even though I was shy, everyone made me feel welcome and was so friendly. This club is really something special. I truly feel at home here and I feel like an equal even though I am younger than most of the members. This isn't even really a club, it's a family. Our board works so hard to make everything go smoothly and they do such a great job. Everyone in this family is willing to help each other. I can promise you that you will never find a group as tight as this one and I couldn't imagine being involved in this hobby with any other club. I am proud to be a member of the CCY and I encourage you to join! Quotes

Quotes As a fairly new member to this club I am glad it exists. I was big into the hobby of fish keeping a decade ago and wasted money left and right on fish and accessories I didn't need. The members are nice and full of knowledge. If they don't know it which is rare they know how to find the answer.I recommend checking our club out to young and old to broaden your knowledge or even share some. Quotes

Quotes When the club first started I thought it was amazing to have such a awesome up and coming club in my area. Then after a couple mo.ths Scott asked me to be VP, I glady excepted. I was psyched to be involved with such a cool club. Then my mom was diagnosed with Cancer. Things changed, i no longer had the spare time for the club that i felt i needed to put into it, so i stepped down. Scott supported me the whole time, no matter what my choice. Six months later my mother passed away. I was finally able to make a meeting. At the one year anniversary of the CCY Scott proved to me that what was created was not a club, but a family. The CCY crew had thought of my family and I, giving us flowers and their condolances. This club, this family is one of a kind. I hope for new members and old to experience this. Quotes

Quotes When I created this club I could only imagine 10-15 people getting together once a month and talking cichlids. To have close to 100 members at our last meeting is simply amazing. In 1 short year we have gone from a small club to a house hold name among Tropical fish hobbyist. I owe our members a huge thank you for their support and dedication to our club.
