Thankful for Our Volunteers: Barb Saylor


November is a month to give thanks which is why we are recognizing one of our volunteers each day as we count down to Thanksgiving. Today we appreciate one of the rescue’s long time members. In fact, Barb has been a member since BEFORE we were a rescue as she agreed to be one of the people who signed documents required to become a non profit organization.

She is my next door neighbor and I check the rescue’s mail a couple of times each week and religiously deposit your generous donation checks in Barb’s mailbox for over 11 years now. Barb writes thank you notes for your records, deposits the checks and keeps the board informed when the bank balance starts dipping. She works in the financial field and ensures we get good rates for liability and board insurance. In addition she files the rescue’s annual taxes. We are lucky to have someone with so much knowledge and experience managing the rescue’s finances.

When she’s not working, she’s crafting. She has LOTS of material and makes all kinds of goodies for the craft shows the rescue participates in each year. She coordinates the craft shows including setting up, taking down, staffing with volunteers and creatively displaying all the wonderful handmade goodies made by volunteers. Many of us do a good deal of our holiday shopping at the rescue’s craft tables!

She’s a great neighbor and friend too:)

Please give warm appreciation for Barb’s steadfast support of Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Maryland.
