The pictures will tell you what a great evening we had at our “first annual” Seafood Fest. Everyone had a more than wonderful time: the food was terrific (the delicious cake was donated by Fields of Heather), and the band, Barcode, was great! Of course, there was concern about the weather, as we all know that was not great, with the snow, sleet and rain… but despite that, we had over 200 guests (counting the ticket stubs)! THANK YOU to all who attended, all who donated food and raffle items, the American Legion, the band Barcode, and all our volunteers!

The car show event was a long, cold, windy day, but we received an adoption application for a kitten, in addition to $250 in donations, so it was well worth the chilly conditions!

Fall Yard Sale:

On Saturday, October 4th, we held our Fall Yard Sale at the Center in Stevensville. The weather … well, it started out cloudy and around 8:45 it started to rain, just a little, but not enough to stop us! Folks kept coming and we just grabbed our coats and umbrellas. After a while, the rain stopped and the sun came out. Despite the weather, it was a successful and fun day! Thank you to those who came out to support us, especially to our volunteers and those who donated items!
