Urgent: Pet Connection Needs Your Help!

Do to a manufacturing mix-up, Pet Connection Programs Inc. is in urgent need of reusable grocery-style bags for the Erie County Fair. The bags are then filled with pet supplies and sold to Fairgoers to raise funds for the nonprofit animal shelter in Marilla. Unfortunately, only 200 bags have arrived so far, and they sold out the very first day of the Fair.

 If you can help with a donation of new bags, please call Joe Kirchmyer at 997-0152.
