Welcome to the Michigan Koi & Pond Club Website

The purpose of the Michigan Koi & Pond Club is to promote the keeping, appreciating and exhibiting of Koi, also known as Nishikigoi, as well as water gardening as a hobby. The Club engages in educational activities related to our hobby and strives to disseminate information to our members and to the general public.

The MKPC was founded in 1996 and continues to meet monthly from March through November. We strive to provide an array of topics and educational activities that are both interesting and useful for our members whether a newcomer to this hobby or an experienced pond keeper. Monthly newsletters are sent to our members from March through October. Our Pond Tour is an annual event for us and is located in a different city each year within the tri-county area around Detroit. In 2012, the MKPC held its first Koi Show which has now become an annual event.

Meetings and events are generally held the third Saturday of the month, usually at 1 pm. Please visit the Upcoming Events section for more information on our next meeting.

We appreciate your interest and encourage newcomers to contact us if you have any questions.

2016 Planning Meeting

Once a year we set aside a special day to focus on the next year.  It takes thought and advance planning to develop a complete calendar of events for an entire year.

This brainstorming meeting is coming up fast!!!!  It will be November 7th at East Side Mario’s Restaurant in Livonia., 31630 Plymouth Rd., between Merriman and Farmington Roads, #734-513-8803.   Please note a time change!  We will be starting at 12:00 noon, ordering lunch which is on your own, then having the meeting.  The Board of Directors meeting will follow the Planning Meeting.

We welcome everyone’s ideas.  We need everyone’s ideas.  The more heads that come together, the more topics/ideas we will have to toss around.

The best Planning Meeting would be one in which we have too many ideas and have to decide which ones to do in 2016 and which ones in 2017. 

This is your club, let your ideas on educational topics be heard.

If you cannot make it but have a topic to suggest, please submit it to Ray at bearraya@aol.com or myself at scrapbookmom59@aol.com to present at the meeting.
