Guilderhaven saves six orphaned fawns

GUILDERLAND — Thank you to our “Fawn Fund” supporters, our wildlife rehaber Jean Simmons was able to stabilize six youngsters and move them on to the next stage which will eventually lead to their release. It is both joyful and heartbreaking work, because not all of them survive.

It is also hard work not to fall in love with these gorgeous spotted babies with their huge brown eyes, because they are not meant to be pets. All of us should appreciate the great work that rehabers do for our community. Thanks also to The Enterprise for their article on this subject.

This is the last week of the “blue bag” fundraiser at the Guilderland Hannaford. If you haven’t already contributed, the fundraiser ends July 31.

Tickets for the Oct. 6 Gathering of Friends fundraiser (at Mallozzi’s) have arrived. They will be available Aug. 1. To reserve yours, call me at (518) 861-6861. This is our 15th year and happens to fall on my birthday. So come celebrate with us.
