Sharon E. Yackey, Vice
President of Friends In Harmony, announced
today that their club unanimously approved their venture. This includes being an active
member of the Council and House of Peers, designing and purchasing a banner, etc.
Just to let you know what our Club is up
to, we selected as our charity the Wildlife Waystation here in Los Angeles, California.
This is a wonderful organization, fully supported by volunteers. It is 150 acres and it
receives and cares for abandoned, abused and neglected wild animals from all over the
world. It never turns down an animal, and it keeps it forever, except if it can be
rehabilitated and released back to its natural habitat, or if a zoo desires it. (Usually,
the animals are not zoo specimens, because of people interference, i.e. de clawed tigers,
etc.) The Waystation takes excellent care of these animals, and the public can visit
occasionally. We adopted a three-legged lioness named Daisy. On Sunday, we held our
meeting at the Wildlife Waystation (beautiful warm California weather). We were given a
tour and of course we got to meet Daisy, who is extremely active and unhampered by her
missing front leg. (I do want to tell you that Karen Gilbert of Whimsical Wares in Granada
Hills, paid for the adoption. She is great.) After our tour, we just held our meeting
among the roaring lions, howling wolves and monkeys. It was WONDERFUL.
Friends In Harmony. Our list is now complete with all 13 HK authorized independent clubs
