Westerly School carnival benefits Bay animal kennel
Each year, the student council and teacher advisors select a recipient for the funds raised at the school carnival. This year, the $300 donation went to the Bay Village Animal Kennel.
Westerly teacher and student council advisor Kirsten Thomas explained in a letter to Animal Control Officer Diana Fife that the students chose the kennel because of its importance to the school’s custodian, John Glasmire.
“We are proud of all [his] work and dedication” to the kennel, Thomas wrote to Fife. “To honor his hard work and your good cause, we have donated the money. Thank you for all you do for the animals.”
The donations are placed in a fund for the kennel which will be used to upgrade the existing kennel and other needs.
Friends of the Bay Village Kennel will be participating in the Bay Village Historical Society Country Festival on June 18 to continue to create awareness of the kennel.
Cleveland's premier balloon twister and entertainer, Flower Clown, will be there, along with Elmo from Sesame Street.
