Illini Bird Fanciers Club Meetings and Activities


Harvard Park Babtist Chruch We hold regular club meetings once per month, normally on the 1st Sunday of the month from noon to 4:00 PM. Our regular club meetings are held at the Havard Park Babtist Church, 2401 South 9th Street, Springfield, IL. [View Street Map] We extend an invitation to anyone who is interested to attend our meetings as our guest to learn more about our organization.

Our meetings begin with a deluxe pot-luck lunch provided by contributing club members, who always prepare a spread covering several tables with delicious entrées, side dishes, deserts and beverages. Our meeting lunches provide an opportunity for our members to catch up on news, and spend with general fellowship. Lunch is followed by a program, or workshop, and then our business meeting.

Members are encouraged to bring their birds to our monthly meetings to help socialize them, educate fellow members about various species and varieties, and general entertainment and showing off. However, all birds brought to meetings must be owned and observed by the member for a minimum of 60 days prior as a precaution against the possible spread of avian diseases.
