March in Maine means mud and that means spring is close upon us. Seed catalogs litter kitchen tables and a red-winged blackbird has been seen. Another sure sign of spring is the kickoff of the MSSPA’s annual Buy-a-Bale campaign.
Each of the many horses at the Society’s barn eats approximately one bale of hay every day. Multiply that by 365 days and it becomes clear why hay is one of the largest expenses in the Society’s budget. Our goal is to raise $100,000 by the end of June, with your help, and fill the haylofts with more than 20,000 bales of hay. *
Please donate online at www.msspa.org, send your check in the return envelope provided or call 207-892-3040 (M-F 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM) to use your major credit card. If you know a friend to animals who could help out by buying a bale, please help us help the animals by passing this letter along to them.
On behalf of the horses, thank you for your support.
Very truly yours,
Meris J. Bickford
