Letters to the Editor, June 11
Question is who decides: Abortion or life?
To the editor:
The question is not what the Bible says about abortion. The question is: Who decides if a given woman should have a baby or an abortion?
Helga Y. Eaddy,
Humane Association thanks participants of wine tasting
To the editor:
We want to thank everyone who helped make our Spring Lights Wine Tasting and Silent Auction, held Saturday, May 30, a huge success. So much effort by so many people was required to make this our biggest and best so far. Ticket sales were up, with one lady selling more than 20 tickets. The collection of items for the silent auction was a group effort, and we are so grateful to the merchants and providers of services who contributed, some who have helped for years, others who are new this year.
Thanks to Jay Patel, manager of Economy Liquor Store, who secured wines from five vendors to give tasters a large variety to sample. Thanks to the professionals who provided tables of food, and to the Red Hat Ladies, who provided a table for the first time, and to the many volunteers and friends who brought their favorite delicacies to share.
Thanks to Nikki Warren for the flowers. Thanks to Letha Marlow for her expertise in keeping the food tables filled and things running smoothly. Thanks to George Houk, who served as MC and kept things on track. Thanks to the Times-Gazette for the publicity.
We appreciate everyone who sold tickets and everyone who bought them. We see many familiar faces each year who are faithful friends and we could not have had a successful event without their loyalty. Also, a lot of new faces were seen this year and we hope to see you back next year.
Enough cannot be said about our volunteers. We have so many with different talents, each doing his or her job to make the whole thing "click." We have several smaller fundraisers during the year, but this is the one we depend on to be able to pay our bills for the coming year.
Our ability to help the animals depends on all our friends who help us. We are grateful to each of you who contributed to making this event a big success. We also want to thank the many friends who were unable to attend but sent donations to help with caring for the animals.
