A message from Congowings:
For some time I have been taking care of some personal issues which had to take priority. I was hoping to be able to get back to some of my normal routines, but have realized it will be a bit longer. Unfortunately, one of my normal routines since 2009 has been creating the calendar fundraiser for the Wildlife Center of Virginia - The Garden of Eagles.
The calendar has been a labor of love over the years which I have enjoyed putting together. The photographers have been an inspiration and I have appreciated their support. The calendar would not have been possible without their beautiful photos.
The support of so many WCV fans has been what has made it possible to create, print and distribute the calendar over the years. Everyone can be proud of what we accomplished - both in donations to the Center and providing information about the Bald Eagle - and wildlife. We have come so far from the first response Mr. Huwa made, “it will never work”. I think we proved him wrong. And I take great delight in that. :)
I had hoped I would be able to work on the calendar in September. Unfortunately, I have come to the realization that I am unable to give the calendar the attention and time it needs. It is a difficult decision for me to reach. I know many will be disappointed - as I am. I am hopeful that come next year I will be able to create a 2024 calendar and hope everyone who has supported it in the past will continue to do so.
I do hope everyone might consider donating what they usually donate for the calendar and Buddy Bucks - either by a donation or purchasing items offered in the store. Caring for Critters is a wonderful way to support the Center.
I want to thank the Center for their help in creating the calendar over the years - photos, copy, Ed’s Message and their welcome input. So many people have helped over the years in so many different ways.
Thank you again for your support and friendship. It means so much to me and also to the Center.
In the meantime - be sure to “attend” the 2022 Gala! So many wonderful items to bid on and your donations help wildlife. As always - take care and enjoy watching the Critter Cams!
