They Came, They Saw, They Conquered!!

We had the most AWESOME group of one day volunteers today.  They represented the firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers. The project coordinator was Karen Whirley, who brought 23 enthusiastic, energetic and STRONG volunteers. For over four hours,armed with machetes, loppers and yes, even chainsaws, they tackled a project that would have taken us days.  These volunteers cleared a large area of land that overlooks our lake.  Why? We use soil to cover our cats dens and to fill in areas in their enclosures that may have been washed away. They cleared the area because that is where we will get our land fill and growing on this soil were weeds and more weeds.  Very tall, very thick, very stubborn weeds!  They worked under the blazing hot sun.  They cut, chopped and dragged bushes, trees, and limbs, until we could once again see the lake. 
Our volunteers and staff are so appreciative to this wonderful group of people from PricewaterhouseCoopers.  Thank you, thank you to all of you.
They truly "Came, Saw, and Conquered".
