Margaret Mead, the American Anthropologist was quoted as saying, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever does.”
With that in mind, you are encouraged to attend the first quarterly orientation of 2014 for Friends of the Madera Animal Shelter.
We are a small, committed group of citizens working to change our corner of the world to save and/or improve the lives of the homeless and helpless animals of Madera County. In doing so, there are residual effects: we become a kinder, gentler county; we save tax dollars; we learn to value life; we become a more cohesive community.
Please join us on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 6 p.m. at the Madera County Animal Shelter, 14269 Road 28, Madera.
All citizens who are not already FMAS volunteers and who are interested in this valuable, critical and humane work are welcome to attend.
Volunteer meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month at the Madera County Library at 6 p.m. If you cannot attend the orientation, we hope you will come to the volunteer meeting to learn more about us.
You are welcome to call me at 232-1352 with questions.
