Dear APEC Members and Friends,
‘Twas the month before New Year and all through our halls,
The pythons were snuggling up in balls.
The rabbits and ferrets were grooming their fur;
The lizards and birds were enjoying winter.
Fifty five thousand children to date,
Have entered Alley Pond Environmental Center’s gate.
An additional seven thousand grown-ups this year,
Have shared in APEC’s programs and cheer.
We need your support more than ever today,
Much of our funding from NYS & NYC has gone away.
Every dollar you donate will make a difference,
Your kindness will help us continue our mission!
The economy’s still difficult, even for you!
But perhaps you could spare another dollar or two?
We’re always sure to use your gifts well.
Some of your gifts help guests enjoy the trails!
The children who visit in May, March or December,
Will always think back and always remember,
The times that they spent here, whether once or a lot,
And the animals that they met, more often than not!
And speaking of animals, did you happen to know,
The cost to feed and care for them has started to grow?
We’re trying to make ends meet with less,
But could use your help; please try your best!
Come to the Center, come visit our trails.
Enjoy calmness and peace; all good things prevail!
Discover new programs we’ll offer this year,
Have a happy holiday season, and a wonderful New Year!!
The Board, Staff and Volunteers
Alley Pond Environmental Center
