People & Pets Extravaganza
July 9, 2016, will be the 7th annual People & Pets Extravaganza at New Horizons UMC from 9 am to 3 pm. This is a community outreach day sponsored by our church.
We are collecting non-perishable food items for Operation Love and Stepping Stones and items for pets in the Narthex/Lobby. Pet items will be donated to The Humane Society, The Animal Protection League, and Ernie's Heart. Ernie's Heart is a food pantry for pets where owners would have to give up their pets because they can't afford to feed them. Items for people and for pets will be weighed. Who will have the most pounds? People or Pets?
In addition to this, there will be various activities for community involvement including pets. There will be pet blessings and the pet organizations will have pets there for adoption. Other activities will include big blow-ups and activities for children, an Anderson Fire Truck, live music, arts and crafts vendors, and more. Be sure to bring a big appetite as there will be free hot dogs and lemonade, Big Joe's Food Wagon with items to purchase such as elephant ears, nachos, etc. There will also be a bake sale sponsored by the UMW.
If helping people or animals is a passion for you, please join us. You can call the church office (644-0949) to offer to help!
