Celebrate Every Day

Our Amigo owners inspire us in all we do. So naturally, when we were thinking of a theme for a tree we created for the Festival of Trees in Freeland, Mich., our Amigo owners were the first place we turned.

The Festival of Trees is an annual fundraiser for Junior League of Saginaw. Trees decorated with unique themes are donated, then raffled off to the public. This year all proceeds go toward an educational playscape that is being built at the Saginaw Zoo.

The name of the tree we submitted, "Celebrate Every Day," was inspired by a quote from Amigo owner Dr. Linda Mona, a veteran's affairs clinical psychologist and Amigo owner since 1981. We made wooden ornaments with quotes from Dr. Mona and other Amigo owners we found particularly inspiring. We encourage you to celebrate every day you are given, and we pledge to do the same.
