It has been my distinct privilege to work alongside a group of dedicated volunteers and community individuals who put their all into making the ninth annual Furry Friends Fashion Fair a success to help the Humane Society’s animals! Big thanks to Bernice Simms, coordinator of the event, and all the volunteers and community folks who joined forces and pulled off another great event. Stephenson’s fashions were stunning, as were the models and their pets that strutted their stuff for animals in need. There were so many groups and individuals who helped to make this event a success that it is impossible to list them all. However, it should be noted that caring people coming together not only make a difference, they have fun!

For the over 320 of you who attended and enjoyed the break in the day with our furry and not-so-furry friends, we thank you for your support. We hope you had as much fun as we did and look forward to next year!

A U.N. commission accused the extremist Islamic State organization of committing crimes against humanity as pictures emerged of the extremists' bloody takeover of the air base.
