I would like to thank everyone who turned out to help with the Haines Animal Rescue Kennel membership event.

Thanks to Mario Benassi for the great film reminding us all of what a great place we live in and how lucky we are to see the grandeur of Haines.

Thanks to the kitchen help: Bill Herman, Carrie Valentine, Aimee Jacobson and sons, and Natalie and Mario Benassi. Thanks to the set-up and clean-up crews including Kate Harrup, Ken and Judy Ewald, Merrill Lowden, Steve Vick, Tracy Mikowski, Lea Harris and Chuck Mitman. Thanks also to all of you whose names escape my brain. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. Thanks also to all of you that donated baked goods, silent auction items and door prizes.

The event was a huge success and the animals of the Chilkat Valley thank you for all your support. Until next year, here’s barking at you!
