The need for blood can be acute in the Philadelphia region. Woodland members give their time on a beautiful Saturday to save lives. For example, Amy Dingler stepped up to the plate and gave an arm.
Tom Loomis provided the leadership. Okay, he brought the doughnuts.
A couple of blocks away at Burke Playground, Megan West, Jen Cohen and friends held the first annual “Save the Mummers and Mutts” event. The folks at TreeTops Animal Rescue have been finding homes for puppies neglected in the South. Laurie, Beth and Andrea deserve thanks for their great efforts to help the pooches.
It was a riot watching the dogs. They were given a free run during the event inside the rink. It was like watching the “Puppy Bowl,” you know that event that runs the day of the Super Bowl.
You can fund out more about the ongoing effort by checking out treetopsrescue.org. The dogs do not bark with a southern accent.
Also on hand while I was there, members of the Quaker City String Band. QC provided the sound track for the festive afternoon of people and puppies.
Speaking of champions, it was interesting to see the results of the Phillies poll I posted last week. The question was which team most fits the description “Golden Era,” the 1950, 1980 or 2010 Phils? With about 3-quarters of the vote, the current teams wins. The 1950 Phillies edged the 1980 Phils for second.
