About Us
Since 1991, MASCOT, Chapter 28 of the American Singers Club
(ASC), has promoted
the American Singer hobby in Maryland and
the surrounding states.  We are a vibrant and growing ASC Chapter
engaged in the hobby of raising and exhibiting American Singer
Canaries.  We presently have 25 members.

We host an
Annual Song Contest on the first Saturday of
November.  Also, we sponsor several other social events during the
year including a Picnic in June and a Holiday party in December.

The common thread that keeps us together is the American Singer
canary.  Our members include some of the most successful and
knowledgeable American Singer breeders in the country.

If you would like to learn more about American Singers or
MASCOT please
email us with your questions.  We encourage your
interest and, of course, we welcome your membership into our club.
We look forward to hearing from you.
