    Hi — this is from the office of State Rep Sarah Buxton.

    We had a great and inspiring day today in Royalton, but we need LOTS of volunteers tomorrow to help as many people and save as many homes as possible. Please continue to do what you can; you are making an enormous difference!

    Check in at 9am, 1pm or 4pm at South Royalton High School. Come with work clothes (BOOTS!), shovels, buckets, gloves, and your bottle of water. We can also use people to help in the office and run errands. If you can’…t be there at these times, come by when you can. We need people all day long.

    We need: perishable and non perishable food (call 763-7740, ext 506 in the AM for info on where to deliver), shovels and pails, trucks, rope, fans and dehumidifiers.

    Are you a clergy person or counselor? Call call 763-7740, ext 506 in the AM; there are so many people who really need someone to talk to.

    Monetary donations can be made to “Operation Revive Royalton” and dropped off at the Town Clerk’s office or mailed to PO Box 680, 58 Safford Street, South Royalton, VT 05068. THANK YOU.

    ATTN ANIMAL FRIENDS: Pet food needed. Any kind is accepted, but we need this specifically:
    Cat food: Purina Proplan, Adult, Chix & Rice, Nutritional extras
    Dog Food: Purina Proplan, Adult, Optihealth, Shredded Blend
    Please drop this off at Journey Church. Thanks from the animals!
