Deputy Lisa Budge-Johnson, Program Service Outreach Coordinator, Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department, will give an interesting talk at the Mattapoisett Women’s Club luncheon on November 14 on the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tenn., the nation’s largest natural -habitat refuge developed specifically to meet the needs of endangered elephants.
The Elephant Sanctuary is a nonprofit organization, licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Also, it is accredited by the Association of Sanctuaries, designed specifically for old, sick, or needy elephants who have retired from zoos and circuses. Utilizing more than 2,700 acres, it provides three separate and protected, natural-habitat environments for Asian and African elephants. The elephants are not required to perform or entertain for the public; instead, they are encouraged to just live the good elephant’s life of retirement and relaxation.
Our Mattapoisett Women’s Club luncheon will begin at noon on Thursday, November 14, in the Reynard Hall at the Mattapoisett Congregational Church, 27 Church St., Mattapoisett.
