I want to start this, my first message, with a whole list of Thank You’s. A huge thank you goes to the outgoing officers - Krystal and Melinda. They have been so important to this organization; I certainly hope that they continue to be involved! Just to be sure, I’ve appointed Krystal to my old Director position – now she can’t get away from me and will have to uphold her promise to be my mentor! Another thank you goes out to Greta who continues on as our Secretary/Treasurer. She has signed up to the task of training a pair of new officers. And finally, a big thank you to the membership that voted this election, not only for voting for both Emilee and I, but also for taking time out of your busy lives to make it to the poll location to post your vote.
The New Year always feels exciting to me. A clean slate to start anything under the stars. As the temperatures dip to negative digits at my house I sit at home planning my rabbit year. Who to breed to who, how to time for the shows I plan to attend, what shows DO I plan to attend, what changes to be made to the rabbitry to make it more workable… Sitting inside next to the woodstove – of course!
This year we plan to have our second Expo in Colville. Put October 8th on your calendars… we’d love to see ALL of you at the show this year. There is plenty of time to plan ahead at this point. Come experience a warm and well rounded show. If there is something that comes to mind for you in your own rabbit plans and thoughts… that the group can participate in, or be more involved or if you have an exciting brainstorm – I encourage you to share it with us. Either through the Yahoo! Group or by emailing me directly.
Let’s all think inside AND outside the (nest) box!
