Animal league celebrates 25 years

The Potter League for Animals is holding a 25th anniversary Humane Education Celebration on Thursday, May 8, at Thompson Middle School in Newport.

For 25 years, the Potter League has continually taught an academically based humane curriculum at Aquidneck Island schools. The public is invited at 4 p.m. for a short program and reception celebrating this milestone year.

As part of the program, the Portsmouth Community Theater will present a short reenactment of the very first educational program presented by the League in 1928. There will also be an overview of the Potter League's education programs, a presentation on pet overpopulation by children from the Martin Luther King Center and an announcement of the winners of our Humane Poster Contest for students in grades 1 through 4.

For more information, call Lynne Mallonee-Sabel at 846-0592.
