We were fortunate to have as a speaker at our May 2018 pot luck gathering one of our own - Kimberly Hosler - who is active in the ever-growing groups in and around the Capitol Region/ Hudson Valley that fight for animal advocacy and animal rights issues. A number of folks asked for information as to how they can get involved.
