BOD changes

The Minnesota Wisconsin Collie Rescue Board of Directors would like to congratulate Marian Ridge and Matt Beckwith on their appointments as Directors for MWCR.  They fill the vacancies created by Patty Hopkins who moved from Director to Treasurer following this year’s election and by Chris Norman who decided to step down after serving six years on the Board.  Beth Selburg, who did not run for re-election as Treasurer due to professional work demands, decided not to remain on the Board as a Director at this time.

Marian and Matt have both been active with MWCR for a number of years, including transporting, fostering, and adopting dogs.  Marian has provided valuable input on decisions involving foster dogs, their care, and their transfer to MWCR.  Matt has a strong business and accounting background which will help guide MWCR as we continue to grow and evolve as an organization.

The Board wants to thank Beth and Chris for their years of valuable guidance to MWCR.  Beth will continue to manage the tags and microchips for our foster dogs.  Chris will continue to use her journalism background to write and manage MWCR’s newsletter and blog.  Beth and Chris will continue to be ambassadors for MWCR at various community events throughout the year.

We greatly appreciate the work that Beth and Chris have done for MWCR as Board members and are pleased that they’ll continue to be involved with the organization. We want to congratulate Marian and Matt on their new roles with MWCR and thank them for taking on additional responsibilities within MWCR.

The MWCR Auction is officially Open!

The easiest way I’ve found to bid is to go to the Helping Paws, Inc Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/HelpingPawsOnline/

Click on the “photos” link on the left side of the screen. You will then see the MN WI Collie Rescue auction photo with the notation beneath stating “auction is open”.  Click on “see all”, and all photos will be displayed. You can scroll through the photos, clicking to open the ones that have items you wish to bid on.

The process to get to the site to bid is sometimes a bit confusing, just remember the auction is being hosted by Helping Paws, so their facebook page is where to bid at (not the MWCR Fundraising FB page).

I’ll be monitoring the site, and will be available to assist as needed, I’ll be checking the site frequently. You can also contact me directly at phroetz@aol.com or 612-756-2728.

Please share widely with your Facebook friends and families!

Happy Bidding!
