Thanks go out to the many people that attended the Rugby Ohio High SchoolGirls Winter Bowl event. The girls collected food for the benefit of My Best Friend’s Bowl and The Rescue Inn. The girls decided to tie the Winter Bowl to a community service project and we came home with lots of dog and cat food. Take a look at the pictures from Saturday. The girls played in the cold and misty rain all day. Luckily for them the field at Garfield School is astro turf saving them from a mud bath. And thanks to Lee from The Rescue Inn for organizing this drive! Be sure to visit The Rescue Inn’s web page too. http://www.therescueinn.com/Read More
