FUNDRAISER FOR A STANDISH SIGN

 

Jimmy Henderson is working toward achieving the rank of Eagle Scout.  He undertook, as part of the requirements for becoming an Eagle Scout, a project to help Standish.  Jimmy raised the funds needed and installed a sign in the front of the shelter not only to identify the shelter but also to make it much easier for adopters to find the shelter.  Thanks to Troop 105 for helping clear the brush to install the new sign.
