Last Meeting of the Semester

Hello, everyone!

We hope you’re all having a lovely Thanksgiving break!

The Cans for Critters supply drive was a great success! There were so many donations, and we’re happy to say that all of the generous proceeds will benefit a local animal shelter! (We’ll let you know which shelter will receive the supplies as soon as possible!) Thanks so much for all of your help!

We just have two quick announcements: first, there will be no more meetings until next semester; second, officer elections have been postponed until then.

Thanks so much, and have a great Turkey Day!


Cans for Critters!

Hello everyone!
Great news about the Humane Society Blackout- Forgotten Friends won ALL of the prizes that we wanted! We’re thrilled to say that we now have several amazing gift sets that we will use in a silent auction to raise lots of money for local animal shelters! Thanks for all of your hard work, job well done!
Though the Blackout may be over, Forgotten Friends has an exciting new effort- Cans for Critters!
