Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, EveryCat and EveryPerson!

Over the last month or so My Library has been accepting Food in place of fines. That means that people who owed moneys for late books and things could bring in a can of Food and My Staff would subtract a dollar from their total bill. The Food is going to be donated to The Caring Center in Lebanon, Indiana. The Caring Center was established in the 1980s, "and serves thousands of Boone County residents every year, continuing its mission of distributing food and clothing through the compassionate care of scores of donors and volunteers."

Before we give the Food to The Caring Center, though, we have to take a picture. (We almost always have to take a picture.) So I commanded my Assistant Assistant Boss to stack the Food in an attractive, photo-worthy pile. She did Ok.

Here I am inspecting her work:

My Staff have counted the Food, and there are 245 Foods to give to the people who visit The Caring Center. If you look toward the top of the pile, you can see that even a Cat can contribute. . . after all, there are Cats in need, too!

Everyone have safe and happy Thanksgivings!

Gobbles & Purrs!

That's a neat way to help others.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your staff.

Oh, that's such a great idea. Very well done by your staff.

We hope you and your staff are having a wonderful Thanksgiving - they'd better bring you some turkey (better yet, maybe one of them took you home for the day).

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

That's a very nice way to give people in need some food. That's also a very nice job of stacking!

We just wanted to stop by and say -
