We invite you to join us in preserving the over 700 species of this beautiful group of freshwater fish known as Killifish.



Greetings from us at WAKO

Our Dec 2017 WAKO meeting was once again a real success. A good sized group of attendees shared the Holiday spirit and we had a very productive meeting. As mentioned earlier, our annual Show & Auction will be the weekend of Oct. 27, 2018 at the new location, Comfort Suites, just across the street from the previous year’s location. The new venue will help us celebrate our 50th club Anniversary!

As in the past several years, WAKO will not be having a January meeting. The weather is too unpredictable and we had no one willing to host the meeting. However, the February meeting will be held the 2nd Sunday at the home of Jim & Gis Gasior in Franklin, WI. Mark your calendars for Sunday Feb. 11, 2018 with arrivals after 2pm and the business portion starting at 4pm. Members will be receiving their reminder emails with the location. Please RSVP so we can plan accordingly.

Besides talking about our plans for the annual Show, we’ll be touching on the upcoming Killifish Karnival Show & Auction scheduled for the weekend of Feb. 24 in South Bend, IN. It’s always a good time to meet with friends and Killies. Details are available at the new website for Michiana Aquarium Society: mas.fish
