Rummage Romp for Pets!
July 29… Set up for the sale
July 30… Colossal Sale beginning at 7 a.m. until 12
New Feature… Pie Cafe!
The 2016 Rummage Romp will be truly amazing… a Rummage Romp that you do not want to miss. Invented 9 years ago by our late, loved Carletta Heide,the Romp has a reputation for clean, quality items donated by members and friends and is one of the most important fund raising projects of the organization. Celebrate Carletta's passion for the “grand and glorious” Romp by volunteering, donating, or shopping!
The new Pie Cafe welcomes the amazing home made pie creations donated by our OMHS members and friends! Pie will be sold by the slice to give inspiration and energy for shopping at the Romp, or by the whole pie if you want to take it home for consumption! Pie and ice cream sounds great!
We are certain that you have been earmarking (no pun intended!) items for this mammoth charity event! Your generous donations of clean and lightly used items and your volunteer help are crucial in the ongoing efforts to raise needed $$$ for helping pets under our wing and waiting for adoption. The medical care to get the pets ready for adoption is the largest cost OMHS has during the year. Rummage Romp proceeds provide $$$ for tick and flea control, vaccinations, spaying or neutering, food, and shelter needs for all the animals.
Your help is crucial to fund the ongoing needs of OMHS. Whether you donate items, volunteer to work, or do both, you will feel gratified that you have provided help for continuing the work of this charitable organization!
