St. John Tradewinds,
This is to notify your readers and the St. John community who have supported the Animal Care Center so enthusiastically, that we have decided to cancel our (Paws and Claws Masquerade) March 4 event.
Our prime mover and co-chair of the event has just recently moved on to another job and cant help this year. Although The Westin had blocked the date for us, little or nothing else had been done at that time. The fundraising committee decided, and I agreed, that unless we could do it well, that it was better for us to call it off, and we reluctantly made the call about two weeks ago.
We need to devote our efforts and energy toward making Wagapalooza a really fun and profitable event. We have time if we start now and our efforts are not diluted by trying to throw something together in March. We hope to be able to bring a really fun masquerade ball back to the St. John social scene at some time in the future, and your continued support of the ACC, through your membership and volunteering, is appreciated.
