Meet Annabelle! She is about 10 years old or older. Her partner passed and she is so lonely! She became too needy for her owner, so she was surrendered to the shelter. She has a few medical issues that are being tended to, but soon will be ready for adoption! Are you an individual or family that has the time for a friend like this? I bet Annabelle would just love to sit and snuggle all day long!
Thank you so much to Jessica Priest Cahill and her family for sponsoring this adoption. If you are a family or an individual who would like to make one of these videos or sponsor an animal, please consider membership to the Humane Society of Warren County! You could also make a fun video like this to help animals get adopted!
Call to schedule a time to visit with Annabelle at the Humane Society of Warren County… she really deserves a good home!

The BOWLS of the Empty Bowl Supper 2021 with Arline Link
The House of Hope is so grateful for the help of Arline Link every year. For several years in a row, Arline has graciously helped supply the BOWLS for the Empty Bowl Supper. She has created a fun community experience inviting people of all ages to come in to help paint the BOWLS. Expect a “coloring book” painting experience to help those who are a little less artistically inclined to still produce gorgeous BOWLS.
Individuals, families, and groups of all sorts have spent time in the studio painting. Girl Scout Troops, Rotary Clubs, and Honor Society groups to name a few who have painted. Please contact Arline at Explore Art & Clay if you are interested in helping. We have about 200 BOWLS we are hoping to have prepared by April 24th! We need your help! Explore Art & Clay: 100 E 8th St, Front Royal, VA 22630 | (540) 636-6019.
Watch this video to see a brief demonstration on how the bowls are prepared and get a sneak peek at some of the bowls that will be up for grabs this year! With every $35.00 ticket purchase, you get a BOWL and 2 TO GO soups. Soups will be located at the Downtown Market on Main Street day of the event. BOWLS will be found on display in numerous storefront windows along Main Street. Check in will be at the visitors center where you will receive tickets for your soups and bowl. Never fear, we will have lots of volunteers to help. Passage Creek Rising will be playing live music at the gazebo, so be sure to pack a chair to enjoy the music after you assemble your TO GO items!

Reaching Out Now buys a cow!
The meal program Reaching Out Now has been providing to our local families has been successfully serving our community for about a year now. Looking to the future, RON has decided to take steps to bring a Farm To Table meal plan to the families! Not only will they be bringing healthy eating to the plates, but supporting local farmers.
Yesterday, Robert Hupman of Hazard Mills Farm took Samantha Barber (President of Reaching Out Now), Michelle Smeltzer (Executive Committee Member of RON) and Jen Avery to the Virginia Livestock, LLC live auction off 619 in Front Royal. Robert helped win the bid for a 1510 pound beef for Reaching Out Now! Hupman explained that on average 40-45% of the weight of the beef will be usable. Chef Devin Smith will be in heaven with such amazing LOCAL fresh beef to cook!
To learn more about Reaching Out Now, visit reachingoutnow.org.
Note: Volunteers to deliver the meals on Tuesdays and Thursdays are still in need. If you are interested, please email Dr. Judith James at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Testimonials from Reaching Out Now volunteers
Reaching Out Now had a busy week last week serving meals to 83 families in Warren County. The work RON is doing is just amazing. Every Tuesday and Thursday, volunteers from the community come together to deliver the delicious food that Chef Devin Smith and wife Teketia prepare along with other volunteers. Meals are healthy combinations of favorites like BBQ sandwich with cole slaw, pork chops & mashed potatoes, shepards pie, or spaghetti & meatballs, just to name a few! Watch this video to hear testimonials from some of the volunteers as they arrived to pick up their deliveries for the night:
