There will be a rabies clinic at Appleton Fire Department on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. Dogs and cats welcome. The cost is $12 per shot, cash or check only. Please bring past rabies shot records. All dogs must be on a leash, and cats need to be in some type of carrier. It’s also a good time to license your dog! It costs $6 for spayed/neutered dogs, and $11 for others. If you wait until after Feb. 1 to license your dog there will be a $25 late fee! For more information or questions, call the town office at 785-4722
The next Seniors to Lunch day at AVS is Jan. 14 at 11:30 a.m. If you plan on going, please call the school that morning, so they know how many to prepare for.

Souper Supper and Cake Auction
The library is planning its yearly Souper Supper fundraiser. The supper will be at AVS on Jan. 26 at 5 p.m. They need volunteers to make soups for the supper and cakes for the auction. If you would like to make either, please contact Deb Kieran at 785-2418. Rosey Gerry will be the auctioneer for the cakes. This is a great fundraiser for the library, and a good way to get out with the community members during the cold winter months!
