Humane Society of Logan County's garage sale a huge success

To the editor:

Thank you to all who made the Humane Society of Logan County's garage sale a huge success. The response to our request for donations was truly amazing. It was more than we could have hoped for, and every item that was donated contributed to our success.

Volunteers dedicated hundreds of hours, starting with months of planning, sorting, pricing and displaying the goods. Some set up the spaces, moved tables, moved furniture, loaded and emptied trailers, and did the heavy lifting. Others donated their talents with music, baking and face painting.

Our business partners helped defray our costs with donations of storage space, food and drink, items for the sale, and help with supplies.

The local news media greatly assisted us with promoting our event, along with more volunteers who distributed fliers.

And two days of perfect weather brought out lots of treasure hunters going home with great bargains.

We thank you all. Your continued support of our programs is making a difference in the lives of homeless animals.

We invite you to HSLC shelter's grand opening and open house. It is Saturday, June 9, from 1-4, at 1801 E. Lincoln Parkway. Please come and see what your support has helped us accomplish.

Humane Society of Logan County
Adrienne Hahn, garage sale chair
