Thanks to everyone who came to the October 8 Friends of Francis concert in my hometown, Chesterton IN. From your freewill contributions, and from others who contributed via CD purchases, we raised $400.00 for the Porter County Animal Shelter! Special thanks to PCAS Volunteer Coordinator Julie Sausman, who brought 2 adorable kittens as our special animal guests for the evening. I hope these little ones have found "forever homes" by now. Photos of the event are coming soon... thanks again, everyone!
