Grateful for benefit supper and auction

The Wentworth family would like to say thank you in a huge way to everyone for the benefit supper on March 6. Thank you to all the people who attended, worked on it, and donated for the auction, including Union Farm Equipment, Shepard Nissan, and the Washington and Union Masonic Lodge. We thank you for your support, kindness, love and concern. This is an amazing community! Thank you all.

Humane society fundraiser

The late winter blahs were blown away March 6 at the Lincoln Street Center. Midcoast Maine’s own Steelin’ Thunder steel drum band shook the rafters to support the Humane Society of Knox County’s Tropical Get Away fundraiser. The standing room only crowd danced, ate, and limbo’d the evening away.

I wish to thank all those who attended our event. I especially want to thank our sponsors: Steelin’ Thunder, Kennebec Pharmacy and Home Care, Warren True Value Hardware, Thomaston Place Auction Galleries, Horch Roofing, Domino’s Pizza and Rockland Foodservice. Many other local businesses also contributed: Curtis Meats, State of Maine Cheese Co., Kestrel Works, Bricks Restaurant, Linda Bean, Sea Street Graphics, Rock City Coffee, Rheal Day Spa, Coppola Spa, Rock Coast Sports, The Navigator, McLoon’s Wharf, Art of the Sea and Warner Graphics.

Of course none of this would have happened without the dedication of the volunteers who pulled it all together. Thank you to our committee members: Mike Miller, Joan Vargas, Susan Schiro, Fletcher Smith and Tracy Sala. The following volunteers helped decorate, serve food and drinks, organize games, organize the silent auction, and much more: Richard Procopio, Cheryl Michels, Rochelle Runge, Tony Vargas, Lara Smith, Wendy McLoon, Sam Hall, Karyl Breen, Ward Grafton, Terry Kapusta, and Warner Vaughn.

Because of the help of these individuals and businesses, the Humane Society of Knox County can provide the help homeless animals in our care need until they find their new forever home. Thank you to all who donated, volunteered and attended.
