Sarah came up with a great idea to allow people to sponsor a day of sanctuary. It’s just $100 and you can pick any day! More info and a calendar here. I’ve already signed up in remembrance of my mom’s birthday on Sept. 12th and Tom Chimpanzee‘s celebrated birthday on May 1st.
The Sponsor a Day program was announced in the e-newsletter sent out this morning, but I thought I’d share my excitement about the program and way of honoring others here on the blog too.
In other news, J.B. is working on the greenhouse in this strange sun-and-snow weather right now, and we’re planning for Burrito’s birthday on January 6th. Once everyone is back from their respective short vacations, we’ll sit down and prioritize some fundraising ideas for all of you eager blog supporters. Thanks so much again for raising the funds for the chimp proof window! J.B. has been talking with the steel contractors and trying to figure out a time line for installation, which will probably be weather-dependent. Oh, and I’ve begun to work with Kristi of Vintage Vine and Margie and Nicole to plan the late winter/early spring wine tasting in the upper county – Sippin for the Seven was so much fun last year that we’d love to make it an annual event.
Never a dull moment!
Thank you all for making 2009 full of fun and new experiences for both the chimpanzee and the human people at CSNW. I can’t wait to see what 2010 brings!

I am probably an idiot, Diana, but I can’t seem to find the Sponsor a Day form. 🙁 We want to take December 26th in honor or Butchie Barney Nisitani and February 14 in honor of his friend, Eleanor Julia Talbot.
How sweet, Margaret. So sorry for your recent loss of Butchie. This is the link to the form: http://sponsoradayforchimps.kintera.org/
Sorry to be confusing!
