People & Pets Extravaganza
The 5th annual People & Pets Extravaganza was held July 12, 2014. We collected people food and pet items that were distributed to local food pantries, the Animal Shelter, Humane Society, and Ernie's Heart Pet Food Pantry.
Some of the activities that took place that day included demonstrations by the Indy Dog & Disc Club. Pastor Gina blessed over 30 dogs and cats. She has kept the pets' names and continues to pray for them. She was also disappointed that there was not snake this year! The Animal Shelter had animals for adoption. Activities for kids included the big blowups. The weather intervened and we were not able to have the llamas and alpacas.
Live music was available for people to enjoy as well as free hot dogs and lemonade. Vendors, along with a United Methodist Women's bake sale once again filled the Family Life Center. Huffman Enterprises provided great tenderloins and elephant ears. It was a lot of fun, even with the drizzle that hung around most of the day.
Pets walked their owners around both inside and out! The ones we interviewed said they had a great time!
The plans for the 2015 Extravaganza are well underway as we work on the "good, better, best" of 2014! Everyone is excited! . If helping people or animals is a passion for you, please join us. You can call the church to offer to help and join in planning for next year.
