FROM BILL PRICKETT---
The annual meeting of the Byrd Family - Bellatti Tent, #164, C. F. A., was held Thursday, May 24, 2012, in Jacksonville, Il. There were 22 members, family, and guests in attendance. Rick Purdue was installed as President, Bill Prickett asVice President, and Charlie Bellatti as Secretary.
 Joe Frisco, Sr., veteran Elephant and Animal Trainer, was the featured speaker. After a short review of his 55 plus years as a Elephant/Animal trainer, a review of all the family members presently engaged in elephant and tiger training, a lively question and answer period followed. There were alot of questions on elephant/animal
treatment, training, care, and USDA regulations. Everyone agreeded that this was indeed a timely
and very informative program.
