Also in attendance were Sandy Cadwell, Deb Helfer & Julie Lowe who were some of the first volunteers to help Barb in her mission. We learned the story of how GRASP came about all those years ago, how Barb & the volunteers persistance paid off & even got to see the original logo, along with apparel that they had back then. It was a fun night of learning! Here is to many more years, and pets saved!
