Many thanks to all who contributed to our annual collection for Red Barn Rescue, a no-kill dog shelter in Clayton. We raised $91 through the raffle, won by the Rev. Dr. Cathy Deats, who gave the $20 Petco gift card to Red Barn, for a total of $111. Many also gave dog food and other items for the dogs who have been rescued from kill shelters. We do this every year in honor of St. Francis, whose holy day is October 4th, and in thanksgiving for the gift of our pets and all of God's beautiful creation!
