Make a Dog’s Day

National Make a Dog’s Day is Tuesday, Oct. 22, and the Humane Society of Madison County encourages you to plan a big day with your pet, like taking a car ride or just hanging out for a while in the backyard throwing a ball for them, whatever their heart’s desire.

Then, stop out to your local shelter and take a dog for a walk, or maybe drop some toys and treats. They all need a little pampering from time to time. And if you are in a conversation at a family gathering or at the water cooler at work and hear that someone is thinking about purchasing a dog, suggest they look at shelter dogs that are up for adoption. Who knows, you may become a hero to a four-legged furbaby. How cool would that be?

The Humane Society of Madison County is located at 2020 Plain City Georgesville Rd., West Jefferson, OH 43162. For details about pets up for adoption, call (614) 879-8368 or visit www.hsmcohio.org.

Seeking support for cemetery levy

To the voters of the Pleasant-Darby-Union township cemetery area: Five years ago, we all voted a levy to keep our cemetery from being taken over by the State of Ohio.

In these five years, our township trustees have put these funds, that we so willingly gave, to good use.

Glen Liff, our cemetery superintendent, has replaced the worn out machinery with new equipment. He has taken good care of the trees we replaced, and our cemetery has never looked so good. He does his very best with his staff to see all is running like a well-oiled machine.

So, we need to remember this as our levy is coming up for renewal. I know there are several levies coming up for renewal and many of you will go down the list marking no-no-no, but please say yes for our cemetery.  We must keep it to prevent the state from taking it from us.

Arts Guild thankful for support

A huge thanks to the community, as well as to the London Visual Arts Guild members who helped to make our Oct. 6 fundraiser a success.

The new London Arts Center was initiated into use with live music, great food, and an array of gifts for sale. We offered a 50/50 raffle, face painting, sidewalk chalk art, a bake sale and a silent auction, all supported through Guild and community donations.

The funds from this event will help with renovations of the inside of our new Arts Center, the goal being to offer the community a larger and expanded visual arts experience.

Thanks again to all involved: planners, donors, volunteers and attendees.

Barb Neely, event chair, London Visual Arts Guild
