We have become very busy here at the SPCA. There used to be two to three events for the entire year. The Doggy Derby is now in its eighth year. More about the Doggy Derby later. The “Lights of Love” campaign is in its third year and we have added at least 10 other events. One a month they said, it will be fun they said. “They” are trying to drive me crazy.
I am very thankful that we have two amazing volunteers that organize these events. Dawn is our special events coordinator, that would make her “they” lol. She is very enthusiastic when it comes to planning events and has some great ideas. Her goal is one fundraising event per month and she is getting it done.
Joanna is our volunteer coordinator . We would not be where we are today without her. I am fairly certain I have never met a more dedicated and organized person than she is. She keeps all the volunteers organized and in line making sure things get done. Our volunteer program has at least TRIPLED in size and participation since she took over. The volunteers now know what they can do to help. The staff appreciates all they do for the animals.
