November 2011 Sanctuary Newsletter


Well, it is November and that means that we are now closed for the season. This past Saturday was our last for the 2011 visitor season and we must say it was the best we have ever had. We don’t know what made the difference, other than our awesome fans, but we do very little advertising. So, we know much of it is word of mouth and some little ads here and there. We want to thank everyone who came out this season. We appreciate all our visitors. We hope to see you when we reopen for the 2012 season on April 7th, 2012 (weather permitting).

Freezer Update: Well, Tim got the freezer up and running. We were short about $4000.00, but were able to put it on credit. It will be paid with donations that come in for that. It’s still a whole lot better than buying a new unit at a cost of almost $45,000. Tim’s skills saved us a bunch. It was not without its problems though. Tim got the units installed and one was bad. He had to uninstall it, return it, and start over with it. But, after all his hard work it is now up and running. And just in time for deer season to help stock up for our animals. Thanks to everyone who helped make this all possible. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Cookbook Fundraiser: We are doing a cookbook fundraiser and need your recipes to make it the best one we can. Please send us any recipes you’d like us to include in our cookbook. You can e-mail the recipe, with all, clear and detailed instructions, and your name to show who submitted it to We hoped to get the cookbook out in time for Christmas, but may not be able to. Keep your fingers crossed that we can and it will be available for your holiday gift giving.

Volunteers of the Month: Thanks to all who helped make our Jambalaya Take-Out Dinner a success. There were so many who helped make it a success. Our ticket sellers: Alan Golden, Ginger Paul, Susan Keith, Sandra Finley, Susan Horne, Pepper Lumina, Celeste Beck, Paige Bass and Lynne Jobe. Thanks to those who helped work the food serving line at Shavers: Andrea Labor, Steven Finley, their friend, Ross and Vicki Volk. Thank you all!
