we are fast approaching that very special june day when the incredibly generous and kind spectra energy staff and their families come here to build some needed project to help us care for the animals....they built our shavings bin 2 years ago and last year, the giant barn animal weather shelter that we partially closed in later to make the new barn. they are coming again this year and we have to pick our next project.
so far our "in holding pattern" projects include:
a roof for the shavings bin
a free standing roofed hay feeder for the field
an enclosed outdoor feline cat porch for the FeLV guys
or a proper memorial garden area for the saints that have passed away.
the project needs to be completed in one 6 hour hard work day (they send ALOT of people to help) and the materials cost around $3000 which their company donates.
so now i have to decide which ones are realistic time wise, which ones fit the budget, which ones will benefit the animals, which ones will help in caring for the animals, which ones will be fun and rewarding for the spectra staff to complete and then i have to pick one.
whaaaa, i don't know! help!
