On Sunday, Nov. 6, Foothills Humane Society (FHS) dedicated the new pavilion, located at the organization’s animal shelter on Little Mountain Road. The primary sponsors responsible for the building of the open air area were mentioned at the dedication.
Joanie Lonnes, a member of the unrestricted grants committee of Polk County Community Foundation, was on hand to represent the foundation for the dedication of the pavilion. Also mentioned for their support of the pavilion were the Carol M. Wellman Trust and Stuart Evans, who gave planters in memory of her dog. Joan Roseberry and John Punam of Dogwood Designs donated new highway signs.
Special mention was made of the paver terrace where 50 early birds have bought engraved bricks set in an apron at the entrance to the pavilion to honor friends and pets.
Polly Kennedy and members of the Polk County High School Humane Club assisted at the event and also donated $308 they had collected for the shelter.
