I stopped by Cannon Valley Veterinary Clinic’s retail store yesterday to get a photo of staffer Leah Erickson holding up a poster and t-shirt for next Saturday’s Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals (PDF poster), a benefit for the Rice County Humane Society (RCHS). The clinic is an event co-sponsor.

(See previous LG blog posts on Susan Perry for background info on her. See the Northfield.org calendar listing for the event for more event details.)

  • donate directly; or
  • set up your own fundraising page and then ask friends and family to donate via your page.
