Happy Birthday, to all of you celebrating April birthdays! For all the wonderful and amazing ways you choose to be part of the sanctuary and the lives of those who call it home, we’re just so grateful to have you here, so grateful for *you*.
With our expanded family, it’s a strange month when we find no chimpanzee or bovine birthdays on the calendar. That does not, however, mean there are no parties! Of course we have Easter Sunday on April 17th and April 23rd is our official/unofficial annual holiday, Love a Chimpanzee Day! And though we may not have any sanctuary resident’s birthdays to celebrate along with you this month, well, non-human that is, (<<< hint of something fun to come, so keep your eyes out later in the month!), we expect all of you to add extra celebrations of your own in during the interim. You know the chimpanzees would approve. And we’ll be with you in spirit. And we always have some very special chimpanzees and bovines who we get to celebrate every moment of every day. Thanks to you!
Happy April! Happy celebrations! Happy spring (or autumn as the case may be, she said, Elphaba-green with envy.)!
