KettlerGrymes Memorial School was host to "Kettler" a Broad-winged Hawk - [Buteo platypterus] and his trainer, Environmental Educator Quinn Robinson, from The Wildlife Center of Virginia on Thursday, April 22nd in the "Birds of Prey" Assembly. "Kettler" came to the Wildlife Center as a nestling in August 1988 after falling from her nest in Salem, Virginia and suffering a broken right wing. She was found at the base of her nest tree and taken to Salem Animal Control, which transferred her to the Wildlife Center for treatment. Due to the severity of her injuries, she never regained full use of her right wing and was left unable to fly. Looking on in the background, (first row l to r) Cordelia Hogan, Zach Sisk, and Noah Brear, (2nd row) Jensen Taylor and Neevie Wood, (3rd row) 1st grade teacher, Lisa Warner and Sam Stelter.

Meet Andie McConnell, Director and Co-Founder of the Fairy Godmother Project.

Fredericksburg is an amazing, supportive community. Never did I imagine the support we would receive from individuals and businesses in Fredericksburg. We have volunteers who have been involved since our inception which is amazing. Plus, we have business partners who signed on in October 2011 and are still with us. One man who we call our Fairy Godfather donates every month both gas cards and money. Alis at Bangz does hair cuts for the families and Grass Roots Lawn Care donates some of their services to our families.
