2018 MWCR election
Thank you for voting in the 2018 MWCR election and giving MyLinda Anderson and myself the opportunity to continue for another two years in our roles as Secretary and President. It is an honor for both of us to work on behalf of the organization and our collies to make a difference in the lives of the sweet dogs and their adopters. We look forward to working with all of you to make MWCR an even greater organization.
New services for MWCR
The Board is continuing to review all of the thoughtful suggestions for new services that members made. We’re in the process of selecting the first services and determining the best approaches for implementation. Providing dog food to all foster homes, either through the donated food program or through products ordered by MWCR, will be our first new service. As we roll out new services, we’ll need additional volunteers to help with the processes, so watch for volunteer opportunities.
Auctions, auctions, and more auctions
MWCR recently learned that we’ve been selected by AUCTIONS TO HELP COLLIES! Facebook group to be the next recipient of funds from their online auction. AUCTIONS TO HELP COLLIES! donated $500 to MWCR in 2016 and plans to raise $1000 for us in 2018. Please visit their Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/groups/HelpSadieandSargent/?ref=group_cover. In order to participate in the auction, you must register to join the group. After being approved, select Discussion to learn more about the items and the bidding process. Cathy Pupo, who runs the auctions, adds new items daily so check back often and bid generously. AUCTIONS TO HELP COLLIES! has a reputation for providing quality items and has been very successful in raising funds for collie rescues.
Thank you, Cathy, for your generosity and dedication to collies and collie rescue groups. Collie rescues across the country have benefited from Cathy’s knowledge, expertise, and generosity.
In addition, MWCR member Linda Riegger and her team are organizing the second MWCR Online Auction which will run from May 23 – 27. More details will be shared next month.
