Time flies when you are busy and the HAWS team have certainly been kept very busy over the past five months. Some of you may have noticed the renovations taking place at HAWS. Much excitement is in the air as our newly renovated clinic has, at long last, reached the final stages of completion. We had a slight hiccup in February when, due to that heavy rain storm, our new clinic suffered some water damage. We were devastated to see the damage as painting of the interior of the clinic had only just been completed. Our staff were wonderful during the rain storm and, despite this being after hours, rallied round to stem the flow of water into the clinic and to limit the damage. Of course, care was also taken to ensure all our animals were safe and dry.
This is now my 9th year on the committee and I can with all honesty say that this is a very competent and committed committee. We meet every 6 weeks to discuss what action to take and what is priority for this organization. I would like to thank my committee for their hard work, dedication and many hours sacrificed for the organization.
We lost a very passionate and dedicated committee person and friend, Esthe Jordaan, who was our fundraising Portfolio holder. We will miss you dearly may you rest in peace.
