Pooch Plunge

On Sept. 1, the Humane Society of Washington County, Inc.  and the Town of Williamsport hosted a Pooch Plunge at L. Beard Miller Pool at Byron Memorial Park in Williamsport. The event drew more than 50 dogs and helped raise more than $350 for the shelter.

Humane Society Executive Director Paul Miller said the plunge was a dual-purpose fundraiser. “This event enhances the human- canine bond while also helping raise funds for homeless and at-risk animals in Washington County.”

Dr. Sandra Smith from Spring Mills Veterinary Hospital in Martinsburg, W.Va., attended  the event. “This is always such an enjoyable event. I look forward to seeing the dogs and people having such a good time together.” To see pictures of the event, visit the HSWC Facebook page.

The Humane Society would like to thank the Town of Williamsport and lifeguards for permitting use of the pool for the fundraiser.

Church of Christ events

On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Church of Christ at Hagerstown held its Back2School Party/Talent Show. There were 17 contestants who displayed a variety of talents, including vocal, instrumental and poetry. There were also karate demonstrations. Each contestant was awarded a participation certificate and present for sharing their individual God-given gifts with the congregation and guests. The theme was to encourage one another and to spur each other on with love and good works, as found in the book of Hebrews.

After the talent show, everyone was treated to dinner and dessert. The next event will be the annual Harvest Festival at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Church of Christ at Hagerstown, 10014 White Hall Road, Hagerstown. For more information, call the church at 301-733-5244.
