We'd like to report that, because of YOU, our Open House last Saturday was such a wonderful time of love and celebration of the completion of our Shadow's Rest Building Project. We'd like to thank everyone that braved the elements and drove out so far and made our special day even more special by being there. It was so wonderful to have you. Luckily the rainy weather stopped just in time. At 3:30 we all joined hands and circled the old oak tree and dedicated our beautiful new home to helping even more dogs in the future.
Thank you for helping make our dream come true!
To everyone that donated, bought quilt tickets, had a brick engraved in memory of your someone special, stood for hours parking cars on game days and believed in us and remembered us in your prayers. Thank you for helping us along.
Special thanks to my wonderful Mother, Naomi and sisters, Paula & Michele who traveled all the way from Florida to be with us. To Suzanne Fields, our special friend and Architect, who shared her vision of what Shadow's Rest could be. To a special husband and wife team who inspired us to hold onto our dream, believe in our hearts, and to picture it in our mind, never doubting it would happen. To Donna Cribb who provided our Subway refreshments for the day. To Rick Wheatley, Church Administrator of Trinity United Methodist, who prayed our dedication prayer. To Jenny Rogers of JRogersPhotography, who provided our photo's for the day and also our photo project inside. And to all of our wonderful volunteers who worked so hard to get us ready for this special day. Left to Right: Bonnie, Janice, Susan C, Emily, Kevin, Sarah, Kim, Bruce, Jenny B, Brandy, Susan P. Justin, Susan T., Shawn, Kelly, Jenny R., Phyllis & Mike. Larry & Loraine, center.
Dogs: Speedo, Pedro, Jeffrey, Bernie, Ranger & Gigi.
We could not have done this without you! Thank you!
During the Open House we had a video playing of the construction of Shadow's Rest. For those of you that missed it and/or wanted to see it again...http://youtu.be/TwRAviSGdrI
