To the Editor:
Martin County Humane Society wishes to acknowledge Paul and Connie Krause of Truman, and Molly Meyer of the Fairmont Municipal Liquor Store for the fundraising they did to benefit the animals housed at the Carl Nettifee Memorial Animal Shelter in Fairmont.
Paul and Connie organized a shrimp feed held April 11 at the Northrop Legion. There was a very good turnout. Paul lined up everything, including many of his friends to help out so that all the Humane Society had to do was provide a few workers for that evening. Paul even did a meat raffle on his own and donated the proceeds of more than $500 to us. Many thanks to the Krauses.
Molly, along with sponsors Miller-Coors Brewing Co. and MMBA, held a pet supply drive at the liquor store during April. Because of their efforts, the shelter received food, animal treats, bedding, pet carriers, laundry supplies, collars, leashes, toys, bottled water for our volunteers and a cash donation of more than $250. This is just one of the many things that Molly has done for the shelter over the years. Thank you, Molly.
The upcoming fundraisers are our spring plant sale to be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in the back parking lot at St. John's United Church of Christ, 301 N. Main St., Fairmont. Plant donations can be dropped off from 4:30-7 p.m. Friday evening at that same location.
Our golf outing will be held Monday, June 23, at Rose Lake Golf Course. For more information, please email the shelter at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (507) 238-1885.
The annual rummage sale will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 18, and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 19 at the Eagle's Club, 1228 W. Lake Ave., Fairmont.
