A very busy weekend!

Wow! What a very busy weekend. The garage/bake/craft sale was wonderful! Big thanks to Connie K. & Curt. The grand total for the sale was $2035. This is how we'll break it down: $535 goes into a special fund (The Feliz Navidad Fund), $500 for FFRC medical needs and $1000 for the building fund. This was a lot of work, a lot of fun and a lot of rewards! The concession fundraiser for the Dance Studio is also done. Our profit from this is $733.15! We will put $700 into the building fund and the remainder in the general fund. Thanks Jodi for your time and commitment to this fundraiser. Our total to date for the building fund is now $5,026!! We're close to being 1/3 of the way there. Our Sunday's Volunteer Appreciation Day was wonderful! Over half of the volunteers were able to come. We had cake, chips, cream cheese cake and cookies. Each of the volunteers received a flower and a sack full of useful items. It was great to have so many volunteers able to attend! They are the backbone of this rescue center. Work continues on the new addition. Ceilings were prepped today in readying them for painting. The kittens and cats are all doing great. We had 2 cats returned--Karrdash & Buscha. Karrdash is very long hair, all black and Buscha is a beautiful calico. They spent their first 2 days in June's Room, but are now out and about and seem to be adjusting quite nicely.
