Help a fellow Humanist and Pup: Help Bring Sidney Home Round 2

Unfortunately, our search for Sidney has been unsuccessful. For those unaware of Sidney's story, she is a puppy mill mama who was rescued by Ohio Hound Rescue. She has had little to no human contact and is terrified of people. Our intent was to acclimate her to family life so she could live out the rest of her days happy and being loved. Unfortunately, during transport, she escaped in the Covedale area. We held one sigh party to alert neighbors. It has been over 2 weeks and we have yet to catch her. Our last known sighting was on Thursday the 8th. We have cameras at the location but she has not shown on camera since. At this point we believe she has left the area or is deceased. However, we have no reason to believe she is deceased at this point. The trapper group that is helping us suggested we expand our signage area. Currently, our signs are only in Covedale. If she has moved further out, people may be seeing her but not aware of her situation or who to contact. So, time for party Round 2. If you can join us, it would be appreciated. The more help we have, the further we can canvas with signs. 2 people per car makes it go much quicker as one can drive and the other hang signs. Our plan is to do Westwood/Fairmount/Imago area, and Delhi. (This of course, depends on volunteers. The more we get, the bigger area we can hit) I will provide drinks and snacks. Please bring industrial type staplers if you have one. i have 2. Families are welcome to participate together. Last time we printed smaller flyers and had parents with kids go door to door putting flyers on doors and talking to people sitting on porches. We could do that in family neighborhoods near woods.

Films with Purpose: Mike Wallace is Here!

The Garfield Theatre

For crooked politicians and dishonest businessmen, the words "Mike Wallace is here" invoked dread and fear. Known for his tough reporting and dedication to uncovering the truth, Mike Wallace was a hard nosed reporter who lived to expose lies, scams and frauds. This week Cincinnati World Cinema debuts the new documentary Mike Wallace is here! Come see this film outlining the life and career of this amazing man. You will find yourself saying we need this type of reporting again when news was about telling the facts, exposing the lies and presenting evidence. We will meet at the theater at 6:30 to get together and find seats. After the movie, we will go over the Butcher and Barrel for drinks and an after party discussion. It is likely CWC will extend an invitation to the entire audience to go to B and B, but if not, we will go on our own. B and B gives movie goers a 15% discount. There is a parking lot at Garfield and Race or several other garages and meters nearby. I am attaching a link for the film details and ticket info. Parking info is included. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. http://www.cincyworldcinema.org/MWIH081719.php
