  • We were fortunate in 2006 to receive a generous bequest from a private citizen of Frederick County. We used the bequest to open an Operating Fund from which to draw monies as needed to support our expenses. This is allowing our endowment fund to stabilize, though we expect both these funds to experience possible losses in the current economic climate. The 2008 Budget reflects more aggressive fundraising goals to help offset potential losses in our investments.
  • Talk about offsetting the additional fees, and board commitment to doing this in 2008 as well. Talk about the first Quick Fix for Females, how that came about, what we did this year.
  • We were fortunate to receive the assistance of six area vets to administer the rabies shots at our quarterly clinics in 2007.
  • Transcript of "Fchs annual meeting feb 2011"
