The September meeting of the GPPS was held on September 13th at the home of Dwight and Susan McCutchen in Florence. The drive was far but the McCutchen’s hospitality and beautiful backyard were worth the trip. Their pond is home to many large koi and several red-eared slider turtles.


Gary Ures was the speaker and gave a very informative talk on fish care and pond maintenance. Gary also has his business up and running to be either a consultant or builder of backyard ponds. He can be reached at his website www.koioffire.com or by phone 480-278-6847.
