Thanks to support, fundraiser for animal shelter a success


From Nancy Schaub, chairwoman, Almost Home Shelter Fundraising Committee:

ValenTails, the Almost Home Animal Shelter fundraiser at Oak Crest Golf Course, was a success.

We would like to thank our platinum sponsors, Nelson Paint Company, First Bank and Starship Enterprises; our gold sponsors, Great North Bank, LaFaive Oil Co. Inc., Minerick Logging Inc., Sagola Hardwoods LTD and Niagara Animal Hospital; and our silver sponsors, Eagle Tool Co. Federal Credit Union, Florence Motor Sales, Iron Mountain Animal Hospital, Iron Mountain Iron Mine, Iron Mountain-Kingsford Community Federal Credit Union, mBank, M.J. Electric, Northern Interstate Bank, Orbit Technology, Schneider Iron and Metal, Stewart Manufacturing and Upper Peninsula State Bank.

We would like to congratulate our raffle winners, Stephanie Lund, Sunny Johnson, Sue Vanloon, Rosemary Ball, and Lorettine Rosatti.

Thank you to all those who donated items, time, and effort to make this fundraiser a success. Without the support of our sponsors, our volunteers and the public participation, we might not have a shelter.

Anyone interested in fundraising for the shelter can attend the regular fundraising meeting at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month in the upper level of the shelter.
