November 12 Membership Meeting Announcements

1.  Please keep track of your Continuing Education hours.  These are required when you submit your paperwork for Express Renewals.  Every two years, you are required to have 4 hours of continuing ed, two with your pet ambassador and two without.
2.  Please keep track of your volunteer hours, both visiting and non-visiting.    Visiting hours include those visits/ events that include your pet ambassador.  Non-visiting hours include anything else such as monthly meetings, special events (without your pet ambassador), etc…  We will need this information submitted at the beginning of next year.  It is extremely important we keep this information on file so that we can use it when we apply for grants.  Many of the grant applications require that we have information about the populations we serve.  Thanks for your help with this matter!  More information will be provided about collecting the hours at the beginning of next year.
3.  We are in need of one or more individuals to help with providing food for our Evaluation Day volunteers.  This happens 6 times during the year.  Four of these times occur on Saturday afternoons; the other two occur during evenings.  We have one member who has volunteered but would need some additional assistance!  You have the option to prepare the meals yourself or order pizza, sandwiches, etc…  WAGS will reimburse you for the food.  Please contact Amy Wheatley by email at amywheatley4@gmailcom if you can help out.
We will be accepting donations of cat litter, cat/dog food, beds, treats, toys etc… for My Dog Eats First.  We will collect these at the annual WAGS Christmas Party which will be held on Dec 10 @11:30 am at St. Matthews Episcopal Church.  If you would like more information about this organization, please follow this link:  http://www.mydogeatsfirst.org/
