“Ceilidh For The Haley’s” Fundraiser For A Family In Need. March 28! #Sackville


 Looks like an evening of fun and is definitely for a good cause: 

Some members of the First Sackville Presbyterian Church are hosting a benefit ceilidh/dance and cash only silent auction to benefit a family who is dealing with cancer.  The event will be this Saturday at 7pm at the Sackville Lion’s Den 101 Old Beaverbank Rd.  Tickets are $10.  Everything has been donated, so every penny that comes in the door will be going to the Haley family.

The Sacktown Pizza Saga Continues: Big Bite Is Out, Pomodoro Is In! 


 Well, this is new! 

Calm down, “too many pizza joint” ranters, we have the same amount, this is just replacing one :) 

I don’t know if this place is run by the same owners as the previous tenant, Big Bite, or not. I took a peek at the menu here: http://www.pomodoropizzeria.ca/index.php/latest-proposals/20-special-1 but I can’t tell if it is different than Big Bite – I never did give them a try. 

 I could have waited to call them before I posted this, but that’s no fun – I’m sure some Sackvillains and Beaver Bankers already have the deets for us!

I post and share a lot of missing and found dogs with many happy endings but noone does it any better than the folks running this site. I am often busy when I get a message about a dog and simply post it up on my SM sites and they often pick up on it and help out with the proper info sharing. 

 Check out the message below  from them and keep in mind they have a form/report to fill out which really helps things along.  

 I will continue helping out with the lost critters too but be sure to contact these really nice and helpful people as well – they are the pros.

Are You Looking For A Cat? Take A Look At This One And His Story: 

 Poor fella. Have a read below and if he suits you, shoot me a message and I can put you in touch with the Watchcats. 

“Hi there, I’m hoping you can help. Watchcats has recently rescued a kitty from the Millwood subdivision, he is a special case. He has been fully vetted and in good health except he has tested positive for feline leukemia. In most cases these positive kitty’s are euthanized, but in Millwood’s case we chose to save him, he is showing no symptoms and can live a normal healthy long life. What is difficult is finding him a home, he needs to be a only kitty or live with other positive cats, this making it a difficult task in finding him a home.  I’m was hoping you could post Millwood on sackvegas with his story to help find him a home.  He is approximately 5-8 years old.”
