I have just been elected to the Board this month and am very excited about serving for the next two years on the Board. I first received exposure to CAWS about 5 years ago while in the town of Paonia on a motorcycle rally. CAWS had a food booth in the town park to feed the 1,300 hungry motorcycle riders AND to talk about what they do in the town and the whole county of Delta. I eventually moved to Paonia (from California) because I fell in love with the area and immediately became involved in helping out CAWS with some of their fund raising activities. I worked on increasing inventory in the Barkin Bargains Thrift store with items to sell to the local community in an effort to support the many excellent programs run by CAWS. I completely agree with the mission of CAWS and believe that it is very important to communities to have fair, prevalent, and caring animal control. Helping with the control of the animal population (by spay/neuter activities) is an excellent way to improve the community. I am looking forward to the many years of work with CAWS.
