“Boo” Fest, Madison County’s Family Halloween Festival is Saturday, October 13 from 2-10 pm.

The Madison County Chamber of Commerce and the Madison County Convention and Visitors Bureau have partnered with the Hurt Battelle Memorial Library and the Humane Society of Madison County to present “Boo”Fest, the first ever countywide Halloween family festival in Madison County.

“Boo”Fest will take place on Saturday, October 13 from 2-10 pm at the Procter Camp and Conference Center located at 11235 State Route 38 SE in London.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. A family package can be purchased for $50. This package includes two adult tickets, two child tickets, four hayride passes, four S’more kits, two pumpkins, and game tickets. Tickets can be purchased at the Madison County Chamber of Commerce offices at 730 Keny Blvd. in London, the Hurt Battelle Memorial Library at 270 Lilly Chapel Road in West Jefferson ($1 off each ticket when purchased here), and at Mainstreet Treasures in Plain City.

“Boo”Fest will feature a bonfire, hayrides, beer garden, “little ghosts children’s area,” a battle of the bands, large screen viewing of the Ohio State vs. Indiana football game, silent auction table, pumpkin patch, s’more kits, and much, much more! Additionally, there will be a haunted house (half of the proceeds made from the haunted house will go to the Humane Society of Madison County).

Moving On Up: Humane Society of Madison County is in Their New Home!

The Humane Society of Madison County (HSMC) is finally in their new expanded building located at 2020 State Route 142 NE, just off of I-70 at the Plain City exit. The new shelter has a West Jefferson address, but is only about 5-10 minutes outside of Plain City.

An article in The Madison Press gave some good PR to the shelter. You can read that HERE.

And there was also a nice story in the Columbus Messenger. Read that HERE.

The shelter does not have a permanent phone number yet. If you need to reach them currently, call 614-359-7560.

Humane Society of Madison County’s New Shelter Looking For Volunteers to Get Up and Running.

I recently received the September 2011 newsletter from the folks at the Humane Society of Madison County. As I had told everyone before, the shelter has acquired property and a building where they will be moving off of State Route 142, about 10 minutes from Plain City (can you read my excitement that they are going to be so close to us?), but in the West Jefferson zip code. Renovations have been going on and they hope to be moved in to their new “digs” very soon. The latest newsletter updated some of the things that are going on with the move.

If you click on the page from the newsletter to the left, you can enlarge it and read about the new shelter and what is going on now.

Additionally, I’ve included the entire newsletter link at the bottom of this posting. The newsletter includes lots of good information and photos of the renovations.

I wanted to include in this posting, however, an invite from shelter director, Betty Peyton, to come take a look at the new building and also help out with some of the renovations on Saturday, September 17, and Sunday, September 18. Below is the information on this volunteer opportunity:

On Saturday, September 17th, starting at 9:00am until ???, we need volunteers at the New Shelter located at 2020 ST RT 142 NE, West Jefferson, just a quarter of a mile south of I-70. Volunteers are needed to help finish up painting, wash windows, clean, build stuff, etc.

On Sunday, September 18th, starting at 10:00am until ???, we will finish up all we can.

We think we may already have folks who can build the playpen wall and shelves in the cat playpen area, but there is plenty more that needs to be done.

We are also looking for folks who can help with the landscaping in the front of the shelter. There are a couple dead bushes and others needed trimmed up. We would LOVE to have some fall plants if possible.

All volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer form which can be done that day. If you are under 18-years-old, a parent or guardian is required to also sign the form. Folks can pick up these volunteer forms at the current old shelter at 1357 ST RT 38 SE, London during open hours of noon to 5pm Monday to Saturday or wait until the day of volunteering and fill out at the new shelter.

Come and be a part of the New HSMC Shelter.

I was also happy to read in the newsletter that Madison County is now doing all their spays and neuters in-house and will eventually move to doing public clinics. Because they are up and running with “Neuterville” for the shelter animals, they do have a wish list of needs. You can read the entire wish list by clicking on the flyer to the right to enlarge it and print it out if you would like. There is also a regular shelter wish list on this page, too.

Please help HSMC in any way you can. Once their public clinics get started, Plain City and Madison County people will be able to go there to have their cats fixed, as it will be very, very close.

Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA) Passing through Plain City on Wednesday, June 22.

The 23rd Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA) will take place from Saturday, June 18 through Saturday, June 25 and will pass through Plain City for lunch on Wednesday, June 22. The 50-mile-long event will start in Kenton on the 18th and wind through Marion, Delaware, London, and Bellefontaine before ending back in Kenton on the 25th. 

This week-long trip gives cyclists the opportunity to see many lovely Ohio communities. The route changes every year and this year just happens to run through Plain City. 

The Humane Society of Madison County (HSMC) will be helping supply food to the bicyclists from Wednesday through Friday morning when the group leaves London headed toward Bellefontaine. To feed a large number of hungry riders, the shelter will need lots of volunteers to help serve. They could also use monetary contributions to offset the costs of the food they purchased. This event has the potential to raise several thousand dollars to help area homeless animals. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please call Donna Smith at 614-203-6493 or email her at dluc59@hotmail.com. You can mail donations to: HSMC, P. O. Box 777, London, Ohio 43140.
