Joan Barron Award for the Betterment of Flying Squirrels

Postby Joan » Mon Oct 29, 2007 6:04 pm

As many of you know, this award was established in 2006
http://www.nfsa.us/phpBB2/viewtopic.php ... rron+award

The 2007 (second award) was presented at the Annual Conference at Cape May. Chris Krupenye (krups1110) was happy to accept the award from me for THOMAS HAUK who was unable to attend. Bev will be posting a picture of the awarding.

Kudos to Tom for a well deserved award for all the work he has done for our furball friends.

Tom, there's no one in the world that deserves this award more than you. Congratulations, and a big 'Thank You' from all the flying squirrels you have taken in, cared for, and loved.

Tom is so deserving this award and so much more. He has done wonders with the most ill and frail flyers, never giving up. He keeps trying and thinking of ways to save them. Tom is our support, encouragement, and hope. He probably don't realize it but he is our teacher. I really admire, treasure and love the great person that you are. You have so much wisdom and knowledge about flyers. You have an understanding that no one else has for them. I trust your judgement and advice. Thank you so much Tom!

There are those who have the knowledge and the skills to create miracles for God's little creatures, but the really successful rehabber has to have the heart part; Tom, you have all three. Congratulations!

Big Thanks from Tom

Postby Joan » Wed Oct 31, 2007 6:43 pm

Tom sends a big thanks to everyone involved in the award and a thanks for all the goodies you sent from the Conference. Tom put on the shirt I brought back to him and Brenda took a few pictures of him with the award.

Almost a smile. LOL

Tom says the award is a beautiful job and he's going to hang it over his desk so he can look at it. The cages you see in the background contain the six pups that he has been rehabbing and that are going to be adopted very soon.
