Bake sale benefits Second Chance Animal Shelter

| November 11, 2021 1:00 AM

It started with a love for animals and has become a community tradition that raises money for the local animal shelter.

Friends Lori Werder and Deborah Griffin have held the annual bake sale for the past few years, with all proceeds being donated to the Second Chance Animal Shelter.

"We started this four years ago when our friend Sherry Britton said, 'Let's pick a charity and support it by holding bake sales.'"

This year, the bake sale was organized and held by Werder and Griffin with Britton "watching over us from above" as the group held their fourth annual bake sale and raffle on Oct. 30 at Super 1 Foods.

"Once again, this generous community turned out in support of the shelter animals and in doing so, we were able to present the shelter with a check for $1,852.32," Werder said.

The amount adds to the $1,500 raised at the first event, $1,700 in the second year and $2,197 last year.

Among those assisting the friends at the annual event were 3 Mile Cafe, Carter Country, Jeanine Betsher, John Griffin, Mi Pueblo, Rob Werder, Rusty and Sherry Britton, and Super 1 Foods.

Winner of the first-place prize, a custom knife set, was Teresa Skeen. Winner of the second-place prize, Camo Frogg Toggs, was Tim Randall. The winner of the third-place prize of dog food and treats was Michele Kath.

Many dogs and cats will benefit from the money raised and help feed, house, and treat the animal residents at Second Chance.
