At the Flin Flon Creighton and Area SPCA annual meeting last Tuesday the organization honored two groups of volunteers. The Burbidge family was recognized for all their support with the family receiving an Honorary Lifetime Membership and a plaque was added in memory of Andy Burbidge. As well a plaque will be hung in the Shelter to honor long time Board members who have now retired from the Board Tony Spooner, Marg Bragg, Sherry Barnett and Debbie Hiebert who was involved in starting the SPCA.
President Erica Husberg noted a change in Shelter Manager with Carmen Ward leaving the position replaced by Gail Neufeld. She added financially they are stable but there is always room for improvement noting fund raising was down last year but they did have an increase in adoptions.
Husberg says going forward in 2018 they need to focus on fundraising, membership, merchandise sales and adoptions, they need fresh ideas that will generate income to keep the shelter operating and they need some fresh faces on the Board and Fundraising Committee.
