The Humane Society of Yates County held its annual dinner at Sarrasin’s Restaurant in Penn Yan on April 26 and raised more than $7,000 for the organization.

Tami Marchionda was honored as Volunteer of the Year for her part in helping to raise almost $20,000 for the organization in the last few years.

Marge Larder was given a Certificate of Appreciation for all her support to her husband, Bob, for all the years he collected bottles and cans raising thousands of dollars for HSYC. Jan Lounsberry has taken over for Bob and meets and greets folks every Saturday at the Yates Co. Transfer Station.

Also honored were Dot and Larry Allen as foster parents for Jake for 2008. They plan to continue to foster for HSYC.
