                                                          Welcome Spring!!!! 

                                      I hope everyone has been enjoying this beautiful weather!

      Just a reminder that we will be having our Semi-Annual Meeting this coming Sunday, March 31st. I hope that everyone will be able to make it. Some of you have signed up and a couple have let me know that they will be out of town. Karen and Don Martin have graciously opened their home and their huge backyard to host our meeting. This time our fur babies are welcome! Spouses or guests always welcome! This should be a lot of fun and I want to send out a big thank you to the Martins!!!

      We have a special guest attending our meeting, Robert Thomas has been working at building our new website and he will come to our meeting and introduce all of us and teach us how to maneuver it. 

      We held an evaluation on March 17th and I would like to welcome to our group, Richard Morgan and Brady! Brady received a predictable rating, congratulations Richard and Brady!!! Our next evaluations will be held on Sunday, April 28th.

      We will have our next Workshop at 12:30 – 5:00 pm on Sunday, May 19th. If you know anyone that might be interested in attending or want more information on volunteering with their animal, please encourage them to attend the workshop.

      I have contacted Phoebe and asked when we might be able to add them back to our calendar and I am waiting to hear back. It is also time for the annual Phoebe update, so be sure to get this completed in a timely manner.

      We have added a special visit on Saturday, May 11th from 10:00-12:00 am. We will be visiting with a small group of autistic children at Turtle Park. Please sign up and mark your calendars for this event. I will be returning from a visit to California so, unfortunately I will not be able to attend. The children are very excited to meet our animals. We have also added Lee County Health Care and AARC back to our calendar. Please sign up when you are available. We have a busy schedule and need the help with our commitments.

      Bonnie Fincher has graciously provided oor teams with beautifully embroidered bandannas for our fur babies! Bonnie also recently had a birthday. Happy Birthday Bonnie!!! We appreciate you and your talents!!!!

      As most of you know I am working with the Albany Humane Society and have recruited a school teacher, Vida Gross, to put together a Humane Education power point and we plan to begin getting into the schools.  We will need therapy teams to join us on these visits. The children will love it!!! We will be posting these special visits on the calendar. We attended a career day at Robert Harvey Elementary and Vida was awesome with the children! 

It is with a heavy heart that I add, a past member, Virginia Gray has lost her battle with cancer. Please keep her, her family and friends in your thoughts and prayers

March Birthdays:

Happy Birthday to Betty Livingston, Prudence Milner and Mac Walters!!!
