Today is a sponsor-a-day for Connie Lamm (formerly Connie Robertson) from fellow chimp house volunteers Pam, Denice, Patti, Annie, and Lynn as a congratulations on her recent marriage to Bill!
Connie has been not just a caregiver volunteer for years, she has also been instrumental in helping the chimpanzees in numerous other ways, from spending hours and hours preparing for and holding invaluable committee chair positions for our fundraising events, to calling donors to thank them, to picking up food for the chimps before every volunteer shift. She even got her MAST permit so she could pour cider at our recent Sippin’ for the Seven event.
To top off all of these things she does for the chimpanzees, Connie talks to absolutely everyone she meets about her chimpanzee friends and has charmed many an acquaintance into following the chimps and making donations. Her generosity extends to her human friends as well, and she will gladly drop everything to carry out a favor or offer a word of kindness.
Bill has been so supportive of Connie being at the sanctuary and away from him a lot, often on Saturdays, and he and his sons even helped J.B. with Young’s Hill fence construction; so we all think he’s a keeper.
Congrats, Connie & Bill! With great love from Pam, Denice, Patti, Annie, and Lynn.
