Paw Pals’ Inaugural Pet Calendar Sale Starts October 1st

Paw Pals’ inaugural Pet Calendar for 2010 has already drawn tremendous support and we have announced that 100% of available sponsorship opportunities have been filled.  Many local businesses and non-profit groups have stepped forward to work with Paw Pals on calendar sales.  Our community is much appreciative to the following businesses and groups who have joined to help sell the calendars at $10 each starting Thursday, October 1st.  Hillsboro: Antique Village, Expressions Photography, Hillsboro Veterinarian Hospital, Tangles & Tanz, and Veranda’s; Hubbard: Hubbard Antique Mall; Itasca: Janet’s Beauty Barn; Osceola: Hair Cuts-Etc.; Peoria: Gwen & Bear’s Grooming & Boarding;  West: Mid-Tex Veterinarian Clinic; and Whitney: Sim’s Home Center and Kitty’s Barbershop.  Non-Profit Clubs joining the marketing effort include: Whitney High School Paw Pals Club; Hillsboro Jr. High School Wee-Paws Club and Fellowship of Christian Athletes (these clubs will share $3 of the profits for each calendar sold).

Only a limited number of calendars will be available.  Orders can be reserved today by calling (254) 580-0679 or emailing hcpawpals@yahoo.com .  These will make a great Christmas gift, so we are anticipating a significant response.  All proceeds from the calendar will benefit Paw Pals goals to establish an animal shelter for the county and implement animal control for county residents.

We are most grateful to Amanda Bacon, proprietor of Expressions Photography (126 E. Elm St. Hillsboro, Texas), who has voluntarily contributed hundreds of professional hours during the project’s development.

Paw Pals will premiere the Pet Calendar at 6:30pm on Saturday, October 10th at Blues Skies Café at Willie’s Place (Carl’s Corner) during Paw Pals’ Recognition Banquet.  The premiere will entail a sound-slide presentation of the thirteen professionally constructed family/pet portraits.  Limited seating will be available for the banquet so please make your reservations soon by calling (254) 580-0679.  Banquet cost will be approximately $9 per person (to cover the cost of the meal) and can be paid at the door.
