The Humboldt Poultry Fancier’s Association is a group of dedicated poultry enthusiasts and breeders. The group was founded in 1954 and has been holding annual winter poultry shows ever since. The organization was established with the goal of promoting the hobby. They meet on the first Wednesday of each month and organize events to celebrate their love for poultry.
The club’s annual winter show is held at the Humboldt County Fairgrounds. This event is held to promote the hobby and to promote the welfare of chickens. The event is open to the public. There will be a raffle for an original painting by local artist Allison Reed. The club is always looking for new members. Annual dues are $7.50 per person or $10 for a family.
Protesters are preparing for anti-war demonstrations that will be held in 25 cities around the world on January 18. In Humboldt County, at least 70 people will be taking charter buses to San Francisco. The buses will leave at 3 p.m. on January 17. Other demonstrators plan to carpool and take Greyhound buses to San Francisco. A third charter bus will leave from Southern Humboldt County.
