Rick, Thank you so much for participating in the DC fundraiser for PC. My husband, John, died fromRead More PC 5 years ago. We absolutely NEED this law passed. I will certainly call in support of this and encourage everyone I know to do the same. Best of luck to your dad in battling this ugly monster! Helayne Bruntjen

Hundreds? Try thousands! They were looking for 10,000 people. Don't know if there were that manyRead More but much better turnout than last year when it rained during the event. Lots of fun with all the pets and many in special outfits. Maybe this reporter got this from Kare 11 TV who saw fit to devote and entire 30 seconds to it on their evening news report.

The Walk for Animals was a great event and I was certainly impressed by the turnout during my firstRead More time covering it! Regarding the number of attendees, we haven't heard an official turnout number yet. Anyone who would like to add to the coverage, certainly feel free to upload some of your photos and/or video from the event as to share with other Patch users!

Those Little Free Libraries are such a cool idea! Read, recycle, and share your favorite books withRead More others . . . I just found out about them a few months ago, from reading an article about them in a newspaper, and recently one has been added near my neighborhood. It is a great alternative for those who love to read but can't make it to the public library, or can't afford to always buy new books from a bookstore, and last but not least, those like me who would rather hold a nice paper book in their hands rather than scrolling through a Kindle screen. I wish those Little Free Libraries had been around years ago when I was a voracious reader! I'm sure I would have been checking them out on a weekly basis, picking up a new book, and dropping off one I'd just read in return. Oh, and also, nicely written article, Stefanie.

Love it! We recently moved into your neighborhood and had been away for a vacation when youRead More installed the little library. When we drove back into the neighborhood we spotted the little library and said, "Yay!" We are appreciative of you doing this and are using it. A wonderful addition to this year's lovely spring! Thanks!
