Mrs. Eleanor Hoffman 
Dear Mrs. Hoffman:
I am always amazed at your generosity. Over my eight years you have come in each year at the beginning of the summer and presented me with a check for to be used as I chose within the Town. I remember with fondness the first summer you came in to write my name on the check and I laughed knowing that I could not accept it even though you wanted me to choose the funding recipient in the Town. 
This year we have provided for the work of the Community Animal Committee who over the past few years has done an enormously helpful job in assisting so many seniors with their animals. During these hard economic times many seniors were faced with giving up their animals without the help of this fine group of volunteers. They have not only assisted in providing food and medical care but also in providing transportation to the vets for those who did not have transportation. I personally have the greatest respect for these volunteers who literally spend hours addressing animal issues.
Over the past eight years we have had enormous situations with the population of cats; many being left once the winter rentals end. The Committee has assisted in getting them spade and neutered and also placing them in homes. I think you should also know that our contract with the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk has been such a source of help. Not only have they serviced our community but they have also provided food and medical services at a reduced cost for our community. Our Animal Control Officer, Will Watson, has been a great advocate for our animals as well.
