THIRD ANNUAL MUSIC FESTIVAL FUNDRAISER
The Washburn County Area Humane Society's 2019 Music Festival Fundraiser “Fur-Ever Fest” was held Saturday, June 29, at The Potter's Shed in Shell Lake. It was a “peticularly” hot day but cool music was provided by Chillin With The Cat, Chad Kostner, Jason Chaffee, Bare Bones, and the Smith Family. Also cool was the beer and rootbeer provided by Round Man Brewery, other beverages provided by Pepsi, and the best in town hotdogs thanks to Economart, then add rootbeer floats and popcorn along with the day-long raffle with all the great prizes and Fur-Ever Fest was a day to enjoy.
One more cool thing that day was that so many pets came with their
Fur-Ever Fest people to celebrate the re-establishment of the WCAHS Animal Shelter, which had been destroyed by fire two years ago, and to honor this local humane society having officially been in existence for
Thanks go again to Jack and Judy White who originally created this music fest fundraier idea and coordinated it with Rebecca and Mike Macone, owners of the Potter's Shed. Thanks also to the Fur-Ever Fest attendees, WCAHS volunteers and employees, and individuals who donated prizes/food/beverages. As always, the news media are so helpful in getting the word about WCAHS events out to the many readers and listeners. It could not have been done without each aspect of this fundraising effort of so many kind people working together.

COMMITTEE MEMBERS WANTED
The most effective animals shelters have a strong, enthusiastic, involved volunteer group. As this new year begins, those interested in being a part of WCAHS have an opportunity to help in a variety of ways, but right now Committee Members are wanted, especially with Fundraising and also with a Buildings and Grounds group. So many people have knowledge, time, and talent that could be so beneficial to the shelter. It would not be a demanding, time restrictive position to be in, just a helpful one.
To briefly explain, fundraising would not only be putting ideas together, but helping to coordinate the event and helping with it. Several of the fundraisers are well established but new ideas are always welcome. Fundraising is an necessary means of supporting the continued operation of the animal shelter.
Building and grounds would be helping with upkeep of both the building and the outdoor area, landscaping assistance, and possibly helping design/build the catio which is a project not completed at the time the building was opened, plus seeing other ideas which may be beneficial.
If you would like to be a part of a committee, please call 715-635-4720 or you may email email@example.com
You will be added to the list and then notified of a meeting time and place. Thank you.
