We are hosting a craft and vender flea market to benefit the Menard County Animal Control in our parking lot. Check out the variety of craft and vendor booths and those with flea market booths during the City-Wide Garage Sale in Petersburg. Any one bringing donation items for the animal control, there will be a drop off location along the ally. Look for the “Hang Loose with Kitty-cat and Puppy” room. It is Fun Hawaiian style inside the building offering interactive play with the little fur babies looking for their forever home. Hotdogs, chips, and soda will be served from 11:30 to 1:30 for $3 and all lunch collections go to the animal control fund raising. Starting now and just prior to the event, we will have an online funniest pet photo contest. See Rules and Instructions. We will determine top finalists to be on display April 14th for public attendees to have the honors of judging and voting. The voting will end at 2pm and the winner will be announced at 4pm that day. We will also have a kid’s corner set up for children accompanied by parent. China Ocean on the square has arranged to have menu specials during the event and will accept change as donations for the shelter. After hours, The Hand of Fate is hosting and providing entertainment at their luau party, check out their Facebook page for more details. Come check out the products offered by vendors who so generously donated to the shelter to set up their spaces, play with the fur babies and stay for the party! Rain or Shine!
