I guess the “Angel of the Year” awarded me has fallen and lost her wings.
We continued our fund-raising for ARF by gathering money from donation boxes left in several places.
However, when we entered ARF House, last week, with these money in hand, I was greeted with: “We are no longer accepting donations.”
Wow! I assume this comment was directed to me. There was nothing derogatory about ARF itself (in my previous letter) but praises for “Paws Up for ARF.” This apparently does not reflect ARF’s feelings but those instilled by someone else.
How sad to “beg” for donations to be accepted (which they finally were).
Hogan and I did not have a “shaky hand” as improperly stated in Mr. Modrich’s Aug. 2 letter. Yes, we did have a sizable personal check for ARF in our “shaky hand” but instead walked away embarrassed, humiliated and, may I add, disgusted.
Vice Mayor Hogan was deeply saddened to learn about Honorable Mayor Max’s health and wishes him the best. Hopefully, Mayor Max will tolerate the “pressures of this position as he indeed is a sweet and loving dog.
How dare you, Mr. Modrich, write “Hell hath no furry like an animal owner who loses an election scorned.”
May ARF continue its wonderful work and serve our town for years to come.
Hogan proudly received the honor of being elected vice mayor, which he richly deserves for his (and his campaign manager Madelaine Barnett Cresswell) devoted hours of driving, walking and “begging” for contributions for ARF’s fundraiser, “Idyllwild needs a mayor.”
Thanks to all who supported Hogan and “paws up for Vice Mayor Hogan.”
