The Board of Directors and the friends of the Payson Humane Society would like to thank all of the wonderful people who made our Sept. 14 dance such a great success.
Mary Kennedy contacted the Shelter with the idea of the band Junction 87 and the Mazatzal Hotel and Casino co-sponsoring a benefit for our building fund, we had never held a dance and it sounded like a great idea. Thanks to the efforts of Mary and her committee who included Rudene Collins, Sue Garn, Judy Strickland, Ann VanGheem, Sue Wolf, Peg Browne and Kathleen Hughes, the work was done and everything came together effortlessly.
Because Payson and the surrounding areas are so incredibly generous, we raised $7,300.00 in cash, 261 pounds of kitty and puppy food, 50+ cans of wet food and another $110.00 in gift certificates for food. What a fun night!!
