Madison Area Herpetological Society

Wisconsin Reptile Expo – W.I.R.E.

This is always one of MAHS’s favorite shows, as it’s in our own backyard.  Owner of the show and MAHS member, Jimmy Stelpflug, was kind enough to give us 3 tables!!  We set up one table for information and memberships, one for a silent auction, and moved one to put up a display of animals for people in attendance.  Cody Wilson and Eric Roscoe cruised around getting people to sign our Dane County Wild Animal Petition, while Angel Pollock, Tara Thomas, Luke Madecky, Audra Hilse, and Dawn Zimmerman helped run the tables and get new members signed up.  Also we handed out a lot of info on the new and upcoming Kid’s Herp Society!  Overall it was a great day and many members stopped in to show their support and even help out for a bit.  We raised a great amount of money and got out to  a lot of people.  This was a great event and we look forward to doing it in the fall.
