ROLLING WITH PETS ON WHEELS
Volume 3 - Winter 2001
Pets on Wheels is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing companionship to patients of nursing homes and hospitals.

A NOTE FROM HEATHER

Wow, it is the end of another year already. Now more than ever we need to be grateful for everything we have and also for our ability to give of ourselves. This time of year can be a very difficult time for our friends at the nursing homes. As I say every year, our visits during the holidays bring extra joy, happiness and smiles to those we visit. One of the residents at the Veteren's Home recently told me how much all of the residents enjoy our visits. For a resident to say that, it really meant a lot. It was almost as though he was their representative. I know how busy the month of December can be, but please try to get to the nursing homes and see your friends. That is what the season is all about. Have a wonderful holiday and thank you for being great volunteers.

DATES TO MARK YOUR CALENDER

Make a note of these dates!
The third Wednesday of each month we visit RICA. RICA is a residential placement for troubled youth. For the month of December, we will visit RICA on Thursday December 20 at 7:00pm. Anyone interested in visiting can contact Heather @ 301-396-4580. Periodically POW has special daytime visits; if you are available and interested contact Heather. Our quarterly get together will be held on January 19, look for a flyer in the mail containing specifics. We will have a Pet Parade in February, so look for a flyer with more information. Remember to check the Pets On Wheels phone number to confirm all upcoming events (301-396-4580).

PICTURES WITH SANTA

I want to thank Gary Rotherock for spending the day dressed as an elf, having his picture taken. I have to include Santa in the "thank yous". An Arabic Santa has a hard time keeping himself cool while in costume. Thanks for hanging in there Mohamed. The pictures looked GREAT! We also thank Brad and Laurie Mullett for taking the pictures and keeping track of everything. Volunteers, please keep an eye out next year for our Santa pictures. It was fun and I think the residents will really enjoy them.


VETERENS DAY VISIT

I want to thank everyone who participated in the Veterans Day pet parade. The residents really enjoyed seeing all the animals at once. As usual, all our wonderful pets were really well behaved. It was a very special day for everyone.
