Good afternoon. I wanted to take a moment today to personally thank you for the opportunity The Gorilla Grant I was awarded provided me. I completed my SAMP100 practical this past Saturday with a 97! You have an excellent team in Sandy, Lori, Jaime and Rubi. Each one of them helped me get to where I am today. Iím so excited about my future and the great things that I can do for the small animals in my community! I hope to honor your Gorilla and my Peatie with every special soul I come in contact with.   Thanks again for everything!   Margaret Taormina, CSAMP
