Book Buddies Reading Program begins at TCHS!

Book Buddies Logo webDo you have a young one who is a fan of animals in your household? What about a child who loves reading – or else needs a little practice with it?  Tri-County Humane Society is proud to introduce Book Buddies, a program geared toward helping children and animals.

Book Buddies provides a non-judgmental audience for the young readers; after all, the dogs don’t care if a word is mispronounced or if the reading is done slowly. National studies done on similar programs have shown youngsters’ reading skills significantly improve thanks to practicing with animals.

But the readers aren’t the only ones who benefit. Their presence and soothing words help calm the animals, some of whom can be stressed by being at the shelter.

Chili and Bloody Mary Taste Off! Who got Best In Show?

Who makes the best Bloody Mary in the area? How about the best chili?

Chili Contest Banner

The results are in!  Best in Show Chili was awarded to Cornerstone Buffet & Restaurant in Sartell and Best in Show Bloody Mary was award to The Red Carpet!

We want to thank everyone who attended our first Annual Bloody Mary and chili cook off benefit for Tri-County Humane Society this past Saturday at The Red Carpet! We raised $1,615 to help animals in need, thanks to the 140 guests who attended this fun event!

A fantastic selection of Chili and Bloody Mary entrees were provided by Red Carpet Martini Lounge​, MC's Dugout​, G-Allen's Restaurant & Sports Bar​, Old Capital Tavern​, House Of Pizza​, Lily's Wings, Burgers & Things​, Olde Brick House​, Cornerstone Buffet & Restaurant​, Cowboy Jack's​ and Howie's Sports Bar and Grill​.  We would also like to acknowledge The Place​, who had prepared chili for the contest but unfortunately had to back out at the last minute when their chili tragically hit the floor as they were getting ready to attend our event.  (We encourage you to go there and still try it out!)

Following the guest voting period, a judges panel voted on the top two finalists in each category: MC's Dugout and Cornerstone Buffet & Restaurant for chili and Old Capital Tavern and Red Carpet for Bloody Marys.  Special thanks to retired Fire Department Chief, Bill Mund, retired St. Cloud Police Department Sergeant, James Feeny, and Cathedral High School President, Mike Mullin for helping us pick the Best in Show!
