People & Pets Extravaganza
Many thanks to all of you who helped with People & Pets Extravaganza. It was a great day – sunny, breezy and not too hot. Attendance was not quite as good as we would have liked, however, when talking with The Animal Protection League, the lady commented on how many people were there and what a wonderful day it was. Both The Madison County Humane Society and The Animal Protection League appreciated the donations very much.
Through the efforts of People & Pets, 4 dogs were adopted, 573 lbs. of items were collected to be divided between The Animal Protection League, The Humane Society and Ernie’s Heart Pet Food Pantry. In addition to that, 618 lbs of food were divided between Operation Love and Stepping Stones.
The Humane Society also collected $130.00 through sales of items and donations and The Animal Protection League collected $30.00.
The United Methodist Women profited $106.45 from their bake sale.
Thirty-two people outside the church signed up for free fish fry tickets, and 6 people were drawn and were sent 2 tickets each. From these 32 people, 12 had prayer requests. These 32 people will be contacted by the church.
Two hundred hot dogs and 8 gallons of lemonade were given away.
And last but not least, 29 dogs and 1 cat were blessed by Pastor Gina Kirkland and Pastor Marti Troyer.
Thank-you all for all your hard work and contributions.
