Dear Members & Friends –
Exciting news from behind the scenes at Three Little Kittens! It’s our 5th Anniversary!
Our Fundraising event was, like always, a great success. We did not beat last years numbers, but we did match it! (Good enough for these economic times). Our merchant members helped us to create ten outstanding raffle gift baskets, which everyone loved! A great big thanks to Darci and John Lombardo (owners of Branches Catering) for providing lunch at our biannual ‘Volunteers Lunch’ and mailing event. As always, we continue to work at getting the most out of every dollar raised!
Also, our event names have changed to give credit where credit is due. Our April event now reads “Members Garage & Attic Sale”, and our October event will be called “Members ‘All Holidays’ & Bake Sale”. I am forever explaining to people that attend our sale that the items we sell are donated by our members, so why not put it in print! You, our members, make all of this possible!!!
That I have time to write this letter means we have hit that mid-season “calm before the storm” and are awaiting the second wave of newborn through five week old kittens. We continue to support trap/neuter/release efforts by taking kittens found during those efforts. We have rescued 35 kittens to date and 10 have gone to forever homes. Yeah!!!!!
Our big, big news this year is a face lift to an improved Website!!! We welcome our new Webmistress Nicole Erazo and thank both she and Board Member Marianne Bays for their tireless efforts in re-writing old, and creating new sections. All the trouble we had with our previous host have been dealt with and we have finally included a complete Member Listing on the site. We’re also adding a PayPal link so that we can accept donations on-line. Be sure to check out the new website content.
