Treasurer Announcement

It is with great sadness that we announce the departure of our beloved treasurer, Martin Tusler, effective May 1, 2017. Martin has served on the board for many years and is taking a (much deserved!) break to join his wife Ellen on sabbatical starting in late spring.

Please join us in thanking Martin for his many years of service!

After speaking with several applicants, Emily Norton has been recommended to the Board by Martin and we will be voting on her position at the Tuesday, April 4th SPCA meeting at 387 E. Beck Street at 6:30 PM.
