St. Andrews Village hosted a “Paw Prints Luncheon and Fundraiser” on April 15for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter (LCAS). An estimated 60 people attended the luncheon to show support and make free-will donations that will be used to help cover operating costs for the Shelter.

The Village’s lobby and dining room were decorated with paw prints and other animal-themed decorations. Showcased were photos of resident’s animal companions, many of whom were adopted from local shelters.

A deliciously prepared lunch by Village chef Amy Ronan included assorted sandwiches, mixed green salad, minestrone soup and Amy’s renowned seafood chowder. Two afternoon seatings took place, both ending with a decadent a lemon trifle topped with vanilla bean cream.

At the end of each seating, the Village’s marketing manager, Bob Drury, thanked everyone for attending and for their generous support to the Shelter. A donation of $10 was suggested; however, attendees pulled together and donated over $700, all of which went directly to the Lincoln County Animal Shelter.

Chris Wolff, Director of Programs and Community Relations for the Coastal Maine Humane Society (CMHS) was on hand for the event, and said that she was extremely pleased with the turnout and support. CMHS partners with several animal shelters in the state, one of which is LCAS.
