Presidents Letter 2012
I hope everyone has had a great year. Our organization's year has been successful, thanks to all the wonderful volunteers and sponsors.
I wish to give special thanks to the people that have personally helped make Beak n Wings a reality. These generous people have volunteered, donated, dedicated their valuable time, and worked selflessly to help Beak n Wings realize its mission statement and our purpose.
This year we have celebrated our 13th year helping all companion bird people who wanted to learn more so that they could give their birds a better life. To date Beak n Wings has over 200 members.
We have several new events that we are going to sponsor in 2012. Fashion show, Pet bird show (win ribbons), Chili Potluck , and a few other events, we hope you can join us and have a lot of fun.
We have made many changes within our organization to better serve the public as well as our members. We have attended many new venues to promote our organization and to help find new forever homes for the birds we take in. Our rescue / adoption program has taken in over 1,500 birds since 2003; we continue to find new homes for them. Our process does take some time, but we do get to everyone as fast as we can. We thank everyone who wants to give a bird a second chance and a forever home. We could not do it without you.
A Beak n Wings member receives many benefits including our monthly newsletter (email version); free classified advertising in the newsletter and on the website, as well as knowledge to guide you in providing your birds a better life. We still offer members ways of earning awards / certificates for the hard work they do. We know the birds somehow appreciate all the help they get from us. One of the greatest benefits of being a member is the new friends you make and knowing that he or she belongs to a group that truly cares about one another.
I mentioned that we attend many venues to reach more "bird people." We have attend almost 400 hours a year in the public, talking to people, helping with their birds, as well as finding new forever homes for the birds we have. If you are not a member, this is the time to attend a meeting, program or event, meet other members and join our group!
If you are a member and have not attended a meeting or helped out at an event, this is your chance. We still have several more meetings and many more events planned. Come show your support. You do not have to be a member to attend our events or our meetings; they are always open to the public.
I wish to thank everyone again who has supported/sponsored our organization. You are all greatly appreciated.
