Thanks to Justin Vito Erin A the golf carts got cleaned in the AM
We had lots of hands for cleaning, thank you Marie, Alyssa, Mary Lou, Gina, Chris, Randy and Honey for coming in to help today!
Randy and Chris were able to get cleaning sign offs today, it’ll be great to have them move through the volunteer program!
The large empty cage by the servals was worked on through the day thanks to Devin, Dylan, Lexi, Vito, Justin, Abbey, Kate, Elizabeth Erin A, Nisha, and Erin P.
We managed to go until 4ish without rain and then everyone got soaked!
That’s it from me, a wet Wednesday. - Erin Carden

Bethany Smith joined us this evening and got right to work and made a beer can for our Cigar City Beer project. It looks great! Stephanie Garciareturned from her vacation and put the finishing touches on her flamingo for Priya. It’s so cute! She also helped paint a big flower I made. Lisa “I don’t work small” Alstein made the coolest cactus ever! Lauren Grantfinished her beautiful butterfly garden. Rebecca Williams finished her sunflower and helped make some flowers for Lauren’s garden. Alyssa Weber made a cool tree stump for Jen’s caterpillar to go on. I finished my big beer can and got started on two others. Thanks again for everyone coming in tonight to make cool stuff for the cats! - Maureen Calderon
