Art auc­tion for an­i­mals draws crowd

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

The Haskell Li­brary’s Read­ing Room was full, once again, for the an­nual Art Auc­tion for the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety which was held last Sun­day. Over $2,300 was raised through the sell­ing of do­nated orig­i­nal pieces of art, hand­i­crafts and many other in­ter­est­ing items, all auc­tioned off by Phil De­sormeaux. The money will help pay some of the heat­ing costs this win­ter at the dog and cat

an­i­mal shel­ter, lo­cated in Stanstead. If you’d like more in­for­ma­tion about the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety or you would like to do­nate much needed items such as old tow­els, old blan­kets, cat or dog food, visit their web­site or call 819 876-7785. The So­ci­ety has sev­eral dogs and cats avail­able for adop­tion.

Auc­tion­eer Phil De­sormeaux, al­ways well-dressed for the an­i­mal shel­ter’s an­nual auc­tion, uses his hu­mor to make sure ev­ery­thing gets sold.
