Due to the tremendous response to our "Save the Elephant" program in November, we were able to continue the great work of the Save the Elephant organization in Africa by making a donation of $1,583.51! We thank the people who participated for their generous support.
We are also pleased to recognize the contributions to this success: More than 45 students and teachers participated in the essay and art portion of the program, and they were presented with awards at the Saturday program in the Carriage House.
Winners in the essay contest were: Kaitlin Sandman (first), Sam Rosenberg (second), and Jimmy Nettleton (third).
The following students received Certificates of Art Achievement: 2nd grade: Sam Kehlenbach, Millie Gardner, Linette Spaner, and Natalie Novak; 3rd grade: Dylan Ingram; 6th grade: Brady Ingramand and Sophie Spaner; middle school: Tara Rodriguez, Evonne Morrell, Michael Sisson (first), Helen Porter and Hailey Scott (second), and C.J. Doyle (third); and high school: Shelby Olson (first) and Zoe Matthiessen (second). The Class Achievement award went to teacher Amy Foste.
We are also honored to note that the Save the Elephant Program has been recognized nationally in both the National Geographic and at several recent national and international events supporting this cause. We plan to keep the momentum going and will be planning follow-up events in 2014. Already underway is the adoption of orphaned elephants to create a "Deep River Elephant Family." So far, more than 11 elephants have been adopted; those interested in adopting an elephant to support their care in Africa may visit sheldrickwildlifetrust.org, and please let us know so we can add adopters and their baby elephant to our family and mailing list by contacting Nancy Cohn at nancy_yyy@yahoo.com.
