Woodlawn welcomes the SPCA of Hancock County to the Ellsworth Antiques Show
Ellsworth – Woodlawn is pleased to welcome the SPCA of Hancock County as a special exhibitor at this year’s Ellsworth Antiques Show, August 16 to August 19.
According to Woodlawn’s executive director, “We enjoy featuring a community partner at the Antiques Show, especially when there is a connection to be made with the Black Family history. The last owner of Woodlawn, George Nixon Black, Jr. was a dog lover, often traveling with several canines in tow. His pride and joy was an award-winning St. Bernard named Hub King.” SPCA director, Diana de los Santos shared her enthusiasm, “We are excited to be doing events that are more centrally located in Hancock County, after all, we are the SPCA of Hancock County! Woodlawn provides the perfect location and is a group we are fortunate to be able to partner with. We are grateful for the invitation.” Coming to the Antiques Show is the first of two events that the SPCA will partner with Woodlawn on this year. They will be holding their 9th Annual Pet Fair & Family Fun Day! 2017 on the grounds of Woodlawn, Saturday, September 23, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. For details on this event, visit woodlawnmuseum.org or spcahancockcounty.org.
