Each year at the annual business meeting held during its annual convention, the Honorable Order of the Blue Goose International recognizes ponds with exceptional contributions in the area of charity. The awards were started not for the purposes of competition, but for inspiration. This year, the Virginia Pond received the charity award for its financial donations during the 2020-2021 fund year.
The Virginia Pond was able to maintain its commitment to support local charities in spite of the COVID climate this past year. Contributions were more impactful to these charities because of the COVID climate and its interference with organizations’ normal fund raising activities. A full list of charities that received funds from the pond is below.
On behalf of these charities, we would like to take the opportunity to thank the generous sponsors and loyal participants who consistently support the pond’s charity fundraisers. This award belongs to you. Well done!
