The other fine rice dishes were: Shrimp in Rice – Letty Hernandez, Turkish Rice – Carolina Zapata, Rice Pudding with Caramel Sauce – Runway Bar, Spicy Jamaica Rice- Carolina Zapata, Mushroom Carrot Rice topped with Caribbean Chicken. -Runway Bar. We are grateful to all the cooks for their entries and for their support.

Saga Humane Society would like to give our sincere Thanks to all of our supporters in the San Pedro Town community for helping to make our 10th Annual Halloween Party a fantastic success.  Thank you for your hospitality to our gracious hostess Charlene Woods and the amazing staff at BC’s Beach Bar. The beach was alive with the dynamic sounds of Valentino, aroma of delicious food and the sounds of giggling children.  It was a great day, despite the downpour and hurricane winds that blew the tents down.  Eventually the rain stopped, the sun came out and everyone had a howling good time. Our honored judges this year were Tamara Sniffin, Jan Brown, and Allen Soto.  They had a hard time deciding on the winners of the various Costume Contests. After much discussion the winners were announced. There was a tie for Cutest!

1st Cutest                                  Yankee as Pupcake                    Tula

1st Cutest                                  Bella as a Witch                         David and Benjamin

2nd Cutest                                  Pumpkin Princess                      Elsa

Scariest                                     Voshi as Zombie Dog               Siomarie

Best Team                                 Monsterish Dogs                      Monster High

 

Thank you to San Pedro Town Council for the use, delivery, setup of tables and tents.  The business community of San Pedro was very generous in their donations for our raffles, food and Silent Auction.  We would like to give our Thanks to our local business community who helped sponsor this event and helped make these events such a success. It is with their support and donations that enable us to continue providing services to our community. Please support those businesses that support their community.

Through the generosity of all the people and businesses listed above, and also of the people of San Pedro Town who attended this event, Saga will be able to continue offering services to our community through Operation SNIP. The goal of Operation SNIP is to sterilize 75% of the island animals in 3-5 years.  This will STABILIZE the pet population. In doing so, virtually NO PETS will be strays, wandering and breeding freely. No animals will be born that will not have Forever homes.
