Thank you! Nelson Penner,

We would like to thank our family for organizing this event and all the wonderful people who turned out on Saturday, June 4th, to help us celebrate our 65th Wedding Anniversary. We were truly touched by the overwhelming turnout, and all the cards and best wishes we received. We would also like to thank the Old Orchard Inn for the beautiful facility and great service they provided. Special thanks to the Brian Johnson Band for the music, and all others who helped make this day so memorable.

FURRY FEATURE Mist is a grey and white male cat, born on September 20, 2006. He is Midnight's brother and is adjusting to shelter life a bit faster. They were given up by owners who moved and could not take them with them. They are both very sweet and shy but would make lovely gentle pets and deserve a chance in a second home.
