I attended the OCHS open house on Saturday, Oct. 20. What a treat! No tricks. As we approached the entrance, a friendly greeter welcomed us, as did the OCHS president. Smiling personnel and volunteers offered guided tours. The new kitty play room was full of furry activity. There were refreshments and treats for the visitors. Amidst the excitement and the hustle and bustle were happy, contented animals. It was a celebration perfectly planned and executed. It made my day!
The harvest colored decorations denoted Halloween and also Thanksgiving, so I would like to give thanks to all who worked to make this event so special. Also, I would like to give thanks to OCHS for their wholehearted response to the needs at the animal shelter. Oneida County residents are fortunate to have these enthusiastic, dedicated individuals providing the very best for our animal friends. Because they are nonprofit, they depend on the community. Help them make good things happen by supporting their efforts and their vision for the future.
