This past Saturday was a bit different, in the sense that there was a calm in the air. It was an unusually long run, as we’ve been finishing up within a 4 hour time frame for quite some time now. We spent a lot if time talking with people, about a myriad of issues, some personal, some business, but all truth, and all love. The other very obvious thing was the presence of furry friends. Sometimes we don’t see a lot, but as of late that has changed. This past Saturday, it seemed as if that’s all we were seeing, along with new faces of new friends! However, it was a joy to spend the extra time with our friends, and that’s what it’s all about, engagement.
With the need for any services do great, we are actively working on generating more funding. Well this past Thursday on August 22, we participated in the Vallejo SOUP, which is a potluck dinner community event. At the SOUP community based projects are selected to pitch their projects, with the hopes of gaining some immediate cash funding, all based on funds raised that night. Well long story short, we presented, and received one of the generous cash prizes. Our main goal was to address our need for storage, and that’s exactly what we are planning to do with the wonderful extra funds!
We are expecting another odd weekend next week, because it’s the 5th weekend of the month, and the first falls I’m on a Sunday. All that to say that most people will be on their last leg, til they can access their funds on Monday. We will certainly be prepared for any extra needs we may encounter. Til then, have a wonderful week, and see you in the streets of Vallejo next Saturday on the 31st!
