HART-felt thanks

T he Homeless Animal Rescue Team (HART) and its board would like to thank all our volunteers for their loyalty and support during this time of change while we continue to work with HART’s best interest in mind. We also appreciate the many past volunteers who left HART through the years and have now begun coming back to work with us again.

We thank, as well, our new “med team,” who are committed to maintaining the health and well-being of our animals and the many “foster parents” who are caring for our kittens and special needs cats.

We know that no one person could ever take valid credit for making HART the wonderful place that it is again becoming — it takes a team of many dedicated people to make HART run well and we’re grateful for your ongoing commitment. We welcome you and value your contribution.

Susan Barghini,

president, on behalf of The Homeless Animal Rescue Team Board of Directors

Send a kid to camp

The Foster Kids — Camp Ocean Pines Project to send local foster, guardian and adoptive children to Camp Ocean Pines for a week has entered its second year. This year, because 21 children have applied, we have had to establish a stand-by list for several children who are awaiting funds to secure their reservation.

Although Camp Director Chris Cameron provides these children with a significant discount, we are still in need of approximately $3,000 to secure their placement. If you or your business would like to sponsor a child, your tax-deductible donation can be made out to “Camp Ocean Pines,” with “Foster Children Project” placed in the memo section, and mailed directly to the camp at 1473 Randall Drive, Cambria 93428

Thank you for your support and kindness ahead of time. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.”

Survey for child care

I would like to provide child care or pre-school for children, ages 2.5 to 5 years ---this summer and through the school year. Parents who find that the current programs are full, or do not meet their needs may contact me by phone at 927-0699 or e-mail at

Planning a schedule of required or desired days and times, as well as what tuition is affordable, would help me evaluate such an enterprise.

Fabulous fiber art

Thank you Allied Arts and Judy Schuster for the incredible fiber art show at the Old Grammar School. The show grabs you when you walk in the door with the wow effect.

The presentation is full of passion, drama and dimension. Please bring it back again. What a show!

Building library fund

The Friends of the Cambria Library want to give a big thank-you to the students of Leffingwell High School and Grant Phillips for helping us out in setting up for the last book sale April 30 and May 1. We are all getting older and the aid from these young adults in moving books from the storage shed, across the parking lot and up the ramp to the Veterans Memorial Building is much appreciated.

A big thanks also goes to the many volunteers who set up, sell and break down the hall following the sale. We had another successful sale with the funds going directly into the building fund to finish the inside of our new library. If you haven’t noticed, there is a large thermometer hanging on the outside of the new library showing our progress in meeting our goal of $1.4 million. Keep watching it grow as we have fundraisers planned for the future to help complete the task. Come join us.

And finally, please accept our thanks to the many patrons, out-of-town visitors, and members who continue to honor our book sales with enthusiasm, financial support and contributions. We hope to see you all at the next book sale.
