Friend and fellow killienut, Richard Weinberg, passes away.

It is with great sadness that I must report that our friend, Richard Weinberg, has passed away.  We regularly saw him and his lovely wife, Deon, at Northeast Weekend Conventions.  We will miss them.

From the Burlington Free Press:

“Richard Weinberg passed away peacefully on October 18, 2017 at UVMMC with friends at his side. He is predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his wife, Deon (Morrisville, VT); a son Joseph and wife Erica (Cape Cod, MA); a step-son Damian (Jamaica); a sister Madeline Glick (Rochester, NY); a nephew David Relin his wife Lisa and children (Tampa, FL); a grandson Nicholas; granddaughters Grace and Olivia (Cape Cod, MA); and step grandchildren Trevor and Autumn (Cape Cod, MA); and several sisters-in law and brothers-in-law.. He will be greatly missed by his family, Jewish Community and many friends. Anyone wishing to contribute in his memory should do so at Chabad of Burlington.”

Welcome to SNEKA

SNEKA was started in 2009  to serve the Boston, MA, Providence, RI and Hartford, CT triangle, but we welcome members from farther afield.  SNEKA was founded as a way to get local killifish keepers together, trade fish and have a good time.

We meet irregularly, every couple of months or so.  We have no annual dues, but SNEKA members must maintain their membership in the AKA (American Killifish Association).  We do have meeting dues: either a pair of killifish (preferred), half-a-dozen juvenile killifish, a dozen killifish eggs, live plants,  another killifish related item, or $5.  The fish or other items are auctioned off at the end of the meeting.  If you are interested in killifish, you are welcome at our meetings.
