Farewell Party for Dr. Jan Tomorrow Evening


The island of St. John will say goodbye to beloved veterinarian Dr. Jan Perkins-Fielding, who is moving to the states, on Thursday, April 18, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Skinny Legs.

Those whose pets have been cared for by Perkins-Fielding are asked to email photos of the veterinarian with their pets, or photos of the pets alone, to party planning committee member Judy Buchholz at judybuchholz@me.com. The photos will be used in a slide show to be viewed at the party.

Island residents are also asked to bring a card from themselves and/or their pets for Jan. Cards can be brought to the party, or dropped off at Connections East or West, or at Keep Me Posted.

Party-goers will be given the opportunity to say something about Perkins-Fielding and what she has meant to the island’s animals.
