I would like to thank everyone who attended the Service Dogs Picnic on Saturday August 15; who donated to the silent auction and who donated items to 4Paws4Ability.
Thank you to the other members of the committee Barb Stuart and Jim Pildner and to PPG and GGCCM Trevor Sproul as well as various other helpers – you know who you are – for your tireless help on Saturday and even leading up to the picnic!
We were not sure if we would be able to hold the picnic once it was planned but even in a COVID year of quarantine and uncertainly, the Sisters and Brothers of Ohio Eastern Star showed their generosity toward a very worthy charity.
We heard from JD Aumann of Circle Tail who is another of the Service Dog Organizations that Brother Trevor has recommended to the committee and JD enlightened all in attendance. The proceeds from the silent auction of the day will be donated to Circle Tail. That total being – $973.00 and we thank all of you for your generosity.
Below is a summary of the details for the picnic to include donations, payment for lunches lunches, silent auction and bills for the rental and supplies.
Total receipts $2,960.00
Total disbursements $ 717.00 (rental was $75.00 for the shelter house and food and
supplies was $642.00. Many supplies will be retained
for a picnic for next year).
Total proceeds $2,243.00
I have included some pictures from the day for all to enjoy.
Again, thank you for your support!!
In Star Love
