SANCTUARY HAS LIFE

Girl Scouts plan Skateland party with prizes, businesses chip in

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The barn on Fiegle Road went up in flames on Sept. 11 and the rescue vehicle was destroyed by fire on Mile Strip Road in November, but life goes on at Lakeview Animal Sanctuary.

Construction on a new barn in Pendleton began Tuesday, a rescue truck is on loan from a friend in Medina. Meanwhile, the Girl Scouts of Sanborn are preparing a benefit at Skateland on Saturday.

The girls, who are 10- and 11-years-old, are earning their Girl Scout Bronze Award and collecting donation items the animals are in need of. The troop heard of the adversities befalling Sandi Pfhol and the animals she has rescued so they wanted to do something to help.

“The girls thought of this. They wanted to help her out. She’s had a ruff time,” Co-leader Lisa Capell said. “They worked at Lakeview for a day when they were Brownies. The girls leaned what Sandi does — which is a lot.”

The children fed the animals in the morning and cleaned out the stalls for expectant baby chicks. They brushed the horses and stayed the whole day.

Pfohl also brought Thomas Thaddeus Butterball to a Brownie meeting at the Hope United Methodist Church. “When you have a turkey walking around a Brownie meeting, you never forget it,” Capel said. “They thought it was wonderful.”

To get a Bronze Award, the children have to work 20 hours on a community project.

The skating party is from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. and the admission is $5.50 per person to skate. Brian and Lori Ferraro of Skateland will donate half the proceeds for admission, skate rental and snack bar sales to Lakeview, Capell said. There will be games, giveaways, crafts, bounce houses and live animals.

The Girl Scouts will be collecting used blankets and towels, Dawn Blue dish liquid, guinea pig food, rabbit food, bleach, laundry detergent, scratch feed, horse feed, bird feed, garbage bags and paper towels.
