Hamilton Humane Society dinner draws large crowd

Jasper — A large crowd turned out for Hamilton Humane Society’s Spay-ghetti Dinner, silent auction and FUNdraiser on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Jasper Civic Center.

Guests enjoyed delicious food, great deals on new and collectible items, free prizes, and loads of fun.

Third Judicial Circuit State Attorney Jeff Siegmeister was the keynote speaker and he talked of his love for the pets he and his wife Jamie have rescued. Through biblical references, he spoke about the responsibility of people to protect and care for the creatures God gave us, as well as his dedication to the Hamilton Humane Society’s mission and goals.

Katie Rooney said, “The Jasper Civic Center was converted into an Italian Restaurant for the evening.”

Among the many friends of the Humane Society who attended were Hamilton County Commissioner Beth Burnam and her family, Jasper Town Manager Charles Williams and his wife Barbara, 22 friends from White Springs, including Vice Mayor Walter McKenzie and group organizer Roberta Lacefield, Jennings Vice Mayor Klep Klepper and his wife Barbara, the Hitson Realty family, and Chamber of Commerce President Susan Ramsey. 

“We value each and every one who came out to support us,” said Rooney. “Although quite young, your humane society is dedicated to obtaining a facility to shelter homeless pet animals and to expanding its programs.”

Those programs include an adoption and foster network; low-cost spay/neuter assistance for needy dog and cat owners; humane education targeting schools and youth organizations; a DART (Disaster Animal Response Team) to assist government agencies during emergencies; and other related programs to help the citizens and animals of Hamilton County.
