April owns and operates "The Last Dance Rescue Ranch" on 33 acres between Charlevoix and Boyne City. She cares for over 70 aged, sometimes imperfect, animals that nobody wants. If not for her, these animals would be left to die a lonely death in a shelter or somewhere else unpleasant. April gives these horses, donkeys, goats, alpacas, cats, dogs and more a chance to live out their lives in a comfortable place until their time comes. April depends on monetary donations to help with the cost of food, vet care, etc. She also depends on volunteers to help with the barnyard chores as well as to provide much-needed affection to the animals. Thank you for considering this compassionate individual and her worthwhile endeavors.
This group of 30 Daisy Girl Scouts, in Kindergarten and first grade, are a wonderful group of girls. However, many of their families are economically challenged, and have a hard time paying for dues, uniforms, and monthly field trips. We don't want any girl to be left behind, and are trying to find a way to help these families take advantage of all that Scouting has to offer!
