This past Saturday was the pick-up date for pies at The Tenth Life, a no-kill cat rescue located in the Dayton, Ohio area. The Tenth Life has rescued thousands of cats and a few dogs since 1984, most of which were able to be adopted out after proper care was administered.
Tenth Life has three pie sales every year at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Pies are supplied by local bakery Mehaffie’s, known in the Dayton area for their quality pies, and there are many flavors of pies to choose from, including fruit pies, pecan pies, lemon meringue pies and cream pies. Pies are a huge bargain at 9 dollars each, and order blanks are incorporated here in the Tenth Life newsletter. As you can see in the slideshow, Gladys, One-Eyed Jack and the rest of the welcoming crew will be happy to make you feel loved and welcomed in their home when you come to pick up the pies!
Order Christmas pies now! Pie orders and payments are due by Saturday Dec. 8, 2012, and pies will be available for pickup on Dec. 22 after 10 a.m.
In addition to The Tenth Life pie pickup and kitty-petting event this past weekend, the Sugarplum Festival of Trees took place at the Presidential Banquet Center, 4548 Presidential Way in Kettering. The Sugarplum Festival of Trees is an annual holiday event which kicks off the holiday season in the Miami Valley, and the featured trees always include several with pet themes. The beautifully decorated trees are donated by individuals or groups; the public bids on the trees, and the proceeds are donated to the Children’s Medical Center. In addition, the event includes a live auction, ‘reindeer games’, raffles, vendors, a gift shop, an optional fundraiser dinner and optional champagne lunch. Over 350 TWIG (Terrific Women in Giving) volunteers work year-round to make this spectacular, festive holiday event possible. Check out the slideshow to see some of the clever pet-themed trees and centerpieces at this weekend’s Sugarplum Festival of Trees.
