Animal Folks Minnesota is holding a spring plant sale fundraiser. Ann Olson, the executive director of Animal Folks Minnesota, a nonprofit that works on puppy mill issues, was the guest speaker at MWCR’s Annual Dinner in 2015. A variety of hanging baskets and patio pots are available. Orders must be placed by April 10 and will be available for pick up on May 18 in Savage or May 19 in St. Paul. This is a great opportunity to get beautiful flowers and support a reputable animal organization.
Over 70 ballots were mailed in and counted. Thank you to all of the members who voted in this year’s election and thank you to Nominating Committee members Linda Riegger, Judy Roggow, Russell Sager, and Matt Beckwith for their work on this year’s election.
Thank you for voting
The Nominating Committee, consisting of Linda Riegger, Judith Roggow, Russell Sager, and Matt Beckwith with the assistance of Chris Norman, will be meeting in mid-March to count the ballots and officially announce the results.
Mark your calendars for May 23 to May 27, the dates of this year’s MWCR Online Auction. Linda Riegger, along with Barb and Dave Gibson, are getting ready for the second MWCR Online Auction to benefit MWCR’s collies. Last year’s auction was very successful with bidders from across the country. Watch for more details closer to the date.
