Walmart Supply Drive 8/24/2014
We were joined by Karen Whitehouse, Nancy Ross Thompson, Helen Goins, and Karen Tucker, for a successful supply drive. Greatly in need of Kitten food and scoopable cat litter, we received some wonderful donations, along with dog food, toys, and cleaning supplies. People were very generous with monetary donations, which will help us continue our work.
Along with collecting much needed supplies, we enjoyed seeing some old friends and long-time supporters, and making new friends. It was a hot, humid afternoon, but so many people took their time to stop and say hello, and donate.
Thank you Walmart for always welcoming our supply drives, and thank you to the volunteers who donated their Sunday afternoon for such a good cause.
If you would like to donate supplies, please drop them by during business hours at the Adoption Center, or give us a call and we will pick them up. Many local businesses including Expressions Salon, and Ace Hardware, have an ongoing supply drive, and welcome you to stop by. If you would like to donate directly to AHS, you can do so with your credit card or Paypal, by donating at the bottom of this page.
State Fair - Pride of the Counties - August 16, 2014
This year, the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce has one of the most impressive booths at the State Fair in Louisville. The entire booth measures 10' wide by 40', and has Anderson County artifacts on display from various individuals and businesses, and a giant gift basket to be given away. The Chamber members have always stepped up for AHS, so AHS Director, Donna Callahan, and some board members headed to the State Fair on Saturday night to help out the Chamber. Along with volunteering our help at the booth, AHS also donated some items for the giant basket. This year's theme was "tell your story", and we certainly heard some good stories, and met some very interesting people from Anderson County, and some who enjoyed visiting Anderson County. One of the main attractions in the booth is the wooden "wild" turkey, and both the young and old took turns rocking the bird and posing for pictures. We have some more volunteers going next Saturday evening to help out again. Below are some pictures Anderson County's Booth at the Fair..
127 Yard Sale - August 7-10, 2014
August 7–10 — 127 Yard Sale. Each summer AHS takes your junk and turns it into gold — well, maybe cat food. It's a great time for the society to raise money and to contact the public with more information about our mission, and this year was no exception.
The annual sale raised over $2,000, and was well-attended by local buyers and those following the 127 trail. Jeordie set up his lemonade stand and donated his proceeds. Jeordie's parents regularly volunteer at the Adoption Center, so he was familiar with some of the many volunteers that worked the sale.
A special thanks to Brent Hawkins of Hawkins Storage Rentals for donating a storage unit for our use, and to the Higgins family for making their yard available for the sale.
