Many thanks to Elise Gruber for the beautiful gift of sponsoring a day of celebration in honor of her mother, Trish Swain, on her birthday! Trish shared these lovely words:
“I have followed the blogs and even the archives going back to 2007 when you were preparing for the Cle Elum 7. The blogs are so generous, allowing us to experience your world of dedication, caring, knowledge and fun. They have certainly enriched my life. For my 80th birthday, it’s a great joy to dedicate a day to all of you at CSNW.”
Happy Birthday, Trish! We’re so happy to get to celebrate with you! Thank you for your kind words, your loving heart for the chimpanzees, and all animals, and the difference you make in their lives.
