MARSHALL CO. â€” The Marshall County Humane Society board met last week to discuss plans for the animal shelterâ€™s 30-year anniversary celebration, coming up July 21.
This is the first anniversary event of any kind that the shelter has had, according to board president Vickie Talcott.
â€śA lot of organizations donâ€™t last that long, and I think we are doing well,â€ť said Talcott. â€śI was here before there was an animal shelter, and it was not a good situation. (Animals) had almost no chance of survival.â€ť

People filled the main sanctuary, lined the halls outside, and filled another separate room where there was a video feed of the service.
