Animal Shelter Donations /
Health Group Meeting /
Broadway Bridge
Marlene Spicer, president of the Friends of the Collinsville Animal Shelter (F.O.C.A.S.), accepted two checks for the new shelter today. Chris Armistead (far right above) presented a $400 check from the Lamamco Drilling Co. The Skiatook company had promised to match $200 if raised by the Cards In Action (CIA) for the shelter via their "Pennies for Puppies" fund raiser but doubled the contribution instead today. Nick Mendez presented a $201check for the CIA and was joined by other CIA fund raisers (L-R) Mariah McElroy, Cauryn Mulliner, Alexa Grisham, Mollie Colpitt, Addie Upky, Jordan Shelley, and Leigh Flanary. The check presentation was made at the old shelter. The students checked on the animals in the cramped exiting shelter today and pledged to volunteer at the new shelter when it is completed.
The new Collinsville Animal Shelter came $601 dollars closer to reality today with checks presented by Nick Mendez (left) and Chris Armistead (right).
Susan Babbitt, Marlene Spicer and Donna Alcorn were pleased with today's presentation.
A new group met at the Library for the first time today. That group plans to meet and discuss health topics and related books, and web sites. Initial plans are to meet weekly at 1pm Wednesdays.
Broadway Bridge?
I saw no obvious signs of activity at the Broadway Bridge replacement location today (near the existing animal shelter). (Previous Coverage)
