“‘THANK YOU’ is the best prayer anyone can say”- Alice Walker
Chenoa Manor wishes to express gratitude & thanks to:
Plexus Fitness. The amazing Sean Marcisin assembled a truly stellar cast of Plexus volunteers who created a deceptively challenging, fun & successful Mud Run through the fields and streams of the Manor, for our benefit. For more information on Plexus, you can visit their web site here.
Kate Stroh & Jason Bowman. This dynamic duo not only arranged for an amazing musical performance at the Manor Mudder After-Party by HellSaddle, but they also organized and executed an ample array of delectable treats & eats for all to enjoy.
HellSaddle. Their musical talent was the cherry on top of the Manor Mudder After-Party. And Amelia, the resident green-winged macaw, became their number one groupie (pictured above).
The Manor Mudder participants. A most enthusiastic & athletic group of diverse people supporting a great cause.
Our Volunteers & Supporters. Benjamin Camagna for collecting the generous prize donations from Currie Hair, Skin & Nails…Matt Heiger & Michael Dallas for being prepared to offer first-aid…Joe Powell for the donations of alcohol…Adam Glas for bartending & distributing the alcohol…Kyle Becker, Elissa Pompei and C&Mushrooms for the amazing mushroom donations…A Taste of Puebla in Kennett Square for their addictive salsas…the Girl Scouts for manning the water station…Maggie Garcia-Taylor & her Nationwide Insurance office for donating water.
WHAT WE’RE BUZZING ABOUT
A Taste of Puebla…this Kennett Square-based mexican restaurant is a “must-visit” for their margaritas, salsas, and vegan-friendly food options, by request.
Currie Hair, Skin & Nails...indulge yourself, while choosing animal-friendly skin and haircare products.
IF I COULD TALK TO THE ANIMALS
Music is in the air and parrots are bobbing their colorfully feathered heads and keeping beat with their wings and feet. Although humans may smile and get a kick out of YouTube videos featuring these antics, it truly is an impressive feat once one understands what is occurring. Like humans, parrots (and some mammals like whales, seals, elephants and bats) are vocal learners. This means that they can hear a sound, copy it and then reproduce it. Vocal learners also have a sense of rhythm, which means they have strong coordination between their hearing and their motor skills. Because of this ability, parrots are able to move rhythmically and truly dance. In contrast, dogs & cats are auditory learners. They can hear a sound but have a limited vocal repertoire with which to respond.
