Today is the first day of RVT Month. RVT Month is all about celebrating and recognizing the work that RVTs accomplish every day. RVT month used to be RVT week but that just wasn’t enough and with Ontario leading the way this is the second year we’ve had RVT Month. Every clinic in Saskatchewan will have an RVT Month Kit delivered to them via WDDC. A shout out to WDDC for their continued support of RVTs and the SAVT.
SAVT will also have eight contests on our social media platforms throughout the month of October. These platforms include Facebook, Instagram, eblasts, and our blog. Keep a keen eye out for them. The RVT Month ends for the SAVT with our conference on November 1-3 – have you registered yet? Since June the SAVT has also been working with cities throughout Saskatchewan to ask them to recognize the work that RVTs do. We are pleased to share with you that the following cities have declared a period of time in October as RVT Week: Ministry of Agriculture, Meadow Lake, Melfort, Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Prince Albert, Regina, Saskatoon, and Warman.
We encourage every clinic to celebrate their RVTs and we encourage all RVTs to celebrate themselves and their colleagues. There are many ways to celebrate and we would love to see your celebrations. Share them with us and tag us in them so we can celebrate with you.
