JOHN HENRY DAYS John Henry:Days Committee will meet Thurs. Sept 20 at 7:00 p.m. at the Talcott Fire Dept. Everyone welcome. Receives Donation From Nissan North America, inc. Last summer, 2011, the Summers County Humane Society/ACWP received a donation of a 1993 Nissan Quest from Nancy and J. Patrick Harley of Hinton, West Virginia. The van had been Nancy's much - loved and much - used vehicle for many years. The Humane Society used the Quest to help with transports of animals (primarily dogs) to rescue organizations north of our area so they could be placed in "forever homes", usually in areas with strict spay/neuter programs that result in far fewer unwanted animals than in our area. The Nissan Quest reliably transported many animals to destinations as far away as Hagerstown, Maryland. Earlier this year it began showing its age and use. It made its last transport, taking dogs to a veterinary clinic in Christiansburg, Virginia. It was found to need repairs/parts that were too expensive to justify for a 19 year-old vehicle with over 277,00 miles on it. Nancy Harley recently wrote Nissan Northern America, Inc at its Tennessee headquarters to praise the car that had served so many so well, including pictured of it with the Summers County Humane Society sign on it that identified it as being used to transport animals. Nissan acknowledged the letter with phone calls and subsequently a $1,000 donations to the organization in late July, 2012. While any donation (money, time, supplies,etc ) of any size is always welcome, this large donation has made it directly possible to save lives of many animals, and this organization is publicly thanking Nissan North America, Inc for its generous and caring donation.
