Denise Wickham, Steve Bennett and Brian Kenney of this years Leadership Schuyler Program with one of the 15 feral cat houses they worked with the Watkins Glen technology class to fabricate.
The team donated and secured materials and Karen Armstrong’s technology class produced the 15 houses to be distributed throughout the county where needed. Thanks also go to Cargill and Watkins Glen Supply for their donations of materials.
If you happened to drive through Watkins Glen this afternoon you would have noticed the waiting line at the Watkins Glen Theater. This line went around the block. Over 450 children and parents came out for a "free" showing of the new movie RANGO. The cost of admission for all students was a donation to the Humane Society of Schuyler County. Over 12 large garbage bags of food, cleaning supplies, bedding and treats were collected for the cats and dogs of Schuyler County. It was an amazing afternoon thanks to the PTO and Faculty Association of Watkins Glen School District.
Some highlights of the afternoon included: hearing a young boy in line say "isn't that the dog that we found?" as he looked at a display of before and after pictures of abuse cases.....It was the family that had found Trooper and they were able to learn of his recovery and the wonderful home that he has now. And then there were the 2 young girls who were in the last 25 in line that couldn't be admitted to the theater as it was at capacity. They were disappointed but wanted to make sure that their donations were still received!
What a great day!
1/20/11 - Our good friends at WFLR worked really hard to win the Facebook contest sponsored by station management.
Wiffler was hard at work late into the evening to recruit the most new friends to WFLR’s facebook page. Wiffler and his friends donated their winnings to The Humane Society of Schuyler County and The Shelter of Hope in Yates County! A huge thank you to our friends at WFLR for their continued support!
Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards had a Savin' O' the Green Case Club Party on March 7th to celebrate their 25th anniversary…
They had a HUGE RED CAT HOT TUB CAKE and decided it was too pretty to cut so they auctioned it off and all proceeds were donated to us – THEY RAISED $400! Please visit them, buy some of their fantastic wine and let them know you found out about them from us.
The amazing cake was made by Pastry Chef, Lindsay Traver.
3/12/2010 - Unbeknownst to us, Atwater Estates Winery had a fund-raiser for us during their November and December "Deck the Halls" event.
It was in memory of their beloved winery cat, Corky, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the summer of 2009.
They created a special wine label, with pictures of Corky on it and donated a portion of the sales of each bottle to us. What a wonderful way to remember this special cat and our hearts go out to them for their loss.
Please visit them, buy some of their fantastic wine and let them know you found out about them from us.
Thank you to a very special child, Torie Hill. We received the following email from a proud mother. Read it and you'll understand why.
I just wanted to drop you a note to explain a story to you. My daughter, Torie Hill, is a 4th grade student at the Watkins Glen Elementary School.
With the world as it is today, we have been talking a lot this holiday season about those who are less fortunate than ourselves and how we can help them have a happier holiday this year.
Ironically, Torie came home from school last week and said that instead of her class exchanging gifts between classmates, they were encouraged to bring in a donation for the dogs and cats of Schuyler County who are less fortunate. Torie went to the cupboard and found two cans of dog food, but this was not quite good enough for her. She went upstairs and brought down her “piggy bank” and asked how much a bag of dog food or cat food is because she wanted to supply more for our furry friends. Because I was so proud of her, I made a deal with her that I would match whatever monetary amount she was willing to spend out of her own savings so that we might be able to offer more.
We went to the store and Torie ended up deciding on $15.00 which when I added to my “match” enabled her to purchase a 20# bag of dog food, a 20# bag of cat food and of course they need to have fun, so she also purchased a kitty toy stocking and a doggie toy stocking!
She was beaming with pride as we lugged these items to school today. Torie is definitely my compassionate child and the one who has developed my trait for the overpowering love of animals. I am so proud of her and I just wanted to share my little heartwarming tidbit for the season.
Thank You, to all of you, for all of the work you do and the dedication you give to our less fortunate companions.
Happy Holidays to all of you and all of our furry friends!
