The Joy of Presenting on the Tuesday Zoom Meeting!

Real Estate Agent with John L Scott Market Center 700512026

Tuesday, March 26th, I was given the pleasure of doing my presentation of  our non-profit large animal rescue sanctuary, On Golden Rescue , to about 20 "Zoomer Regulars" (my nickname for the AR members who faithfully show up every week) and were willing to listen to my offbeat powerpoint presentation. 

This came about as a collaboration between Patricia Feager gently nudging me back into the Rain and Eileen Burns offering to do my powerpoint while I waxed philosophic about our amazing animals!

We currently have a total of 20 equines, minis, mini donkeys and goats on our 14AC ranch that will live with us forever. Many stories were shared about them and great questions from several of the members came up. Also, terrific suggestions to improve OGR's  future presentations! For example, William Piotrowski asked great questions and also mentioned that it would be smart to put a QR code into our presentation for easy access to On Golden Rescue's website.

Very smart, Will!

At the conclusion, I asked the interested members to text me their name/number as I offered a free On Golden Rescue calendar.

Picking a name randomly, Kat Palmiotti won!! (Perfect, as she has spearheaded getting new members to join our Zoom calls in the March Contest this month!

Gayle- I thoroughly enjoyed hearing about On Golden Rescue and love the tagline "No More Bad Days."  My good friend has a place in the country and while she does not have a rescue organization, she is often "given" horses in need. She's down to 2 now. It takes 5 hours a day to care for all of her animals. 

I admire what you and Larry are doing. Somone has to care for these beautiful creatures.

Kathy we couldn’t do it without all of our volunteers and our part time staff who are tireless in their support and their hard work. It pays off with all of the love and gratitude that our animals give us continually with their resilience, their sweet natures and their willingness to let us in when many times they have been deeply traumatized in their paths. We can all learn from our amazing “critter clan”

Hello Gayle - while I have not participated in the Tuesday AR Zoom meetings, I can feel the enthusiasm for this cause as I read your post.  I am sure the passion that overloweth is part of the apparent applause of the attending audience. 

Congratulations on the reception and more importantly for the pawsitively woof-worthy appreciation you likely generate from those furry friends you favor.  Keep it up!  🐾
