CALL TO ACTION: Liberty Humane Society NEEDS YOU

"Today the Liberty Humane Society received an unexpected visit from many city officials as well as the President/CEO of the Liberty Science Center. As many of you know, the Liberty Science Center has been under an extensive renovation project and is slated to re-open in July.

In anticipation of this exciting opening, the City as well as the Liberty Science Center has asked all surrounding neighbors to help make this re-opening as successful as possible. One way to do this is by beautifying the surrounding area of the Liberty Science Center.

Since LHS is located directly across the street from the Liberty Science Center, they would really like our cooperation.

The grand re-opening of the Liberty Science Center is going to to attract local as well as national press coverage.

There will be a Black Tie Affair held at the Science Center on 28 June as well as a press conference on 11 July. These activities will give LHS wonderful exposure and attention, which in turn will help our animals that are anxiously awaiting homes.

We need the assistance of our very talented and dedicated volunteers to help us accomplish the many projects we need to complete before 11 July.

Please see the list of tasks below. If you have experience in any of the areas we need assistance with, we would GREATLY appreciate your help!

* An artist that can paint a mural on the back of the shelter
* An architectural rendering of what the shelter will look like when finished
* Volunteers to help paint the front office and entrance way
* Volunteers experienced in sheet rocking to help sheet rock the front office
* Volunteers to help plant flowers

ITEMS THAT THE SHELTER WILL NEED DONATED:
* Flowers
* Flower Pots
* Potting Soil
* Gift Cards for Home Depot or Lowe's
* Painting Supplies

While we hope to start some of these projects immediately, we would need to accomplish the majority of the work during the weekend of June 23rd & 24th. We hope as many volunteers as possible can come to the shelter and roll up their sleeves and help LHS spruce up the shelter!

This is LHS' opportunity to become a good neighbour with the Liberty Science Center and gain some great exposure of behalf of our wonderful animals! If you can help with any of these projects or to make a contribution, please contact Allison ASAP!

Thanks!"
