Marjorie Davis steps down, Carol Stenlund steps up at Fawn Rescue
By Suzanne Cassell
Founder of Fawn Rescue, Marjorie Davis, has stepped down as president of the Board of Directors. “It is with deep gratitude and affection that we wish her all the best in her ‘retirement’ although she doesn’t plan on entirely leaving Fawn Rescue soon,” said Kathy Aanestad, a member of the Fawn Rescue Board of Directors, who added, “She is now ‘officially’ a volunteer to assist our Animal Care Coordinator, Matt Wolfe, in all things fawn-related.”
For over 27 years, Marj has worked tirelessly to do everything humanly possible to return her little charges back to the wild where they belong. Just imagine how many people she has encountered, how many fawns she has rescued, how many vet visits she has made, how many questions she has answered and how many children she has positively influenced over the years. Said Aanestad, “Thank you, Marj, for a life filled with purpose, for being an advocate for nature and the environment and for loving fawns!”
Fawn Rescue’s new president is Carol Stenlund who loves wildlife as well. She is an advocate for leaving space for wildlife, is concerned about habitat and is a proponent of wildlife corridors. Welcome, Carol!
