My column from the April 20, 2010, Tomahawk Leader:
Tomahawk Leader Office Cat
I received this informational email, which also seeks donations beforehand. Do what you can: donate, volunteer and/or buy, buy, buy.
Just in time for your spring cleaning, the fourth annual Lincoln County Humane Society (LCHS) Rummage Sale is May 1 at the Merrill Armory, next to the shelter on Memorial Drive. Hours of the sale are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
LCHS is seeking donated items for the sale, and asks that they be dropped off at the Armory on Friday, April 30 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Donation receipts will be available. Please refrain from donating clothing and appliances, including TVs. The LCHS just doesn’t have the resources to deal with these items. Thank you for understanding.
If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer to help with the sale, please call Jennifer Moore at 715-873-4665. Tomahawk area residents who would like assistance getting their donation down to Merrill may call Tina Larson at 715-771-9125. Additionally, the LCHS thanks My Feed Store at 844 N. 4th St., Tomahawk, for volunteering as an LCHS rummage sale donation drop off location for Tomahawk residents.
We are also including a brat fry and bake sale on May 1, and welcome donations of delicious baked treats of any kind. These may also be dropped off on April 30. To find out more about the bake sale, call Susan Taylor at 715-432-5214.
I was kind of lonely the night of April 10 when I realized I didn’t have a date for Prom. Admittedly, it was a last-ditch attempt when I posted something on my Facebook page. Got a response that “Punkers” was dateless, too. But, when I did some checking, Punkers kind of scared me. She looked like she would be doing all the leading when we danced and I didn’t think she’d own a prom dress.
So, I went solo and caught the grand march without anyone noticing. Slipped out right afterwards, but not without pausing by the live parrots (the Tomahawk High School Prom had a jungle theme). They were a tempting sight for a feline; good thing they were caged.
Ahhh, it’s all a memory now. The only proof I have for my scrapbook a photo of me with my bow tie.
(Editor’s note: Typo was an abandoned kitten that found a home at the Tomahawk Leader office. His columns are highly requested. He also is a Facebook personality.)
