is a very important and pivotal person in the success of Rikki's Refuge. She wears five official hats, and swaps a few others off and on from time to time. In her key role as Public Relations Director, she has moved Rikki's Refuge light-years ahead in just the last few years. Her irresistible bubbling personality draws media attention to everything she focuses on. Our Open Houses have gone from dinky little events run by one or two volunteers, to major productions, with a dozen or more helpers, all kinds of fun events and things to do, and hundreds of people arriving to participate. Jan did a tremendous amount of work rounding up both players and sponsors to donate prizes, and getting the publicity out. She was responsible for stories about the event and the Washingtonian as well as a Free Lance Star.

Jan invites you to her biggest annual production, Sponsor Appreciation Day on April 27 from noon to 4 p.m.

Jan adds, "I am so blessed to work with extraordinary co-workers who always help support Rikki's Refuge in so many ways! Five of my MARINE co-workers played in the golf tournament. Capt McEachin - sponsored a hole thru the National Naval Officers Association (NNOA). Alyce Smith and Kent Graham both sponsored closet to the pin. Also, Judy Saviola created beautiful afghan blankets for prizes."
