This news also means I apologize to everyone who've supported the Moonridge Auction in all its years, for my failure at keeping abreast of the zoo. I'd asked them to give me a head's up in order to organize the planned "Groundbreaking Ceremony Online Auction" prior to the ceremony, and sent another email back in January after reading at the site they'd hoped to start construction this spring, but I heard nothing, nor found any further updates - until I spotted the poster below after reading about one of the animals at the zoo (it was a comment from one of the past FOBBAZ presidents who followed our beloved Betsy)..this morning. 😡
I should have kept better tabs myself, especially since so many of the wonderful people at the zoo who worked with us over the years, are gone. I know how many of you wanted to attend the event as well, so again, I'm so sorry.
Initially we were told once construction began, it would take 18 months to two years to complete, so I promise to keep better tabs on the project so not only can we have the planned "Final Blast, Grand Opening Online Auction!", but you'll have time to prepare and save if you plan to attend! Cross my heart!
Again, my apologies for disappointing 😡, but so happy for the zoo that construction has begun!
