We wish to thank Debbie Piggott for sponsoring Lance.  Lance is a wonderful dog, handsome, sweet and wanting to find a loving forever home.  Lance is a mixed German Shepherd, about4 years old.  He will make a very devoted companion, and aims to p lease.  He had a broken leg that was left untreated by his former owner, and although it did not mend properly he gets along very well on it,.. He would love to go for walks with you or be happy sitting by your side.  He is good with children, cats and other dogs.


We want to thank Tracy Lesmeister for the wonderful job she did hosting another great bingo event to raise money for homeless animals at the TLC Animal Shelter. It is a lot of work and a lot of time and effort that Tracy puts into any of the events she has hosted for TLC. 

We also want to thank the great people that helped her including: Sue Franc-Taylor, Carrie Lawrence-Otto, Jane Fabian and Karen Kittle. We also want to thank the sponsors of the event, Tucker's Doggie Delights, New Lenox, Fabian's Flooring New Lenox, and Trader Magazines. We also want to thank the following Vendors for being there and the great prize baskets the donated for the event including: Mandi from Premier Design Jewelry, Vicky from Avon, Cookie Garden, Barb from Covered in Chocolate, Nick from Tucker's Doggie Delight. 

Thanks to the VFW too, little did anyone know they were without power do to the storm until shortly before the event, and Tracy at that point was beside herself, but all turned out well. We especially want to thank Tracy for all she did especially since she had not been feeling well prior and the day of the event, but like a trooper she would not call it off. We appreciate everyone that came too, even though the weather was playing havoc on us. A great night, a great turn out and all of it to help the animals at TLC.  

The event raised $4,284.00!!!  WOO HOO!!!!!

We want to thank Jennifer Parshall for who volunteered her time and talent to come up with the graphics design for the TLC transport van She deserves a big round of applause for the time she spent coming up with this and you have to admit it looks great! Not only does it look great, it is great advertising so much so that a couple that saw it followed it to the shelter! We also want to thank Jennifer's sister, Linda Sucich who did some delving and found out we could get the work done for free as one of the incentives Ford was offering. We are happy with the results, job well done.

Thank you Jennifer for the beautiful job you have done!
