Buzz: Christmas wreaths go on display and up for silent auction Thursday to benefit Cancer Navigators. Plus: Where to pick up 100 pounds of pure love for free (yup, MegaPig!)

 

Area artists, florists, garden clubs, businesses, interior designers and other individuals have created original holiday wreaths that can be purchased to benefit Cancer Navigators.

The wreaths will be on display Nov. 1-29 at the Harbin Clinic Tony E. Warren, M.D. Cancer Center during regular business hours, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and in the Wright Art Gallery at Floyd Medical Center near the gift shop on the second floor. Everyone is invited to view the wreaths and participate in the silent auction, which ends Nov. 29.

Some wreaths will also be auctioned off on Cancer Navigators Facebook page.

“This marks the eighth year of this festive event, and it gets bigger and better each year,” said Sarah Husser, Cancer Navigators Fundraising & Community Outreach Coordinator. “The array of wreaths brings so much joy to our patients and their families as it kicksoff the holiday season. Thanks to our amazing community, we expect a wonderful holiday display again this year and a successful fundraiser.”

A home for me? The folks at PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Shelter) are still searching for a new home for the pot-bellied pig we’ve nicknamed MegaPig (but only because of that lottery jackpot the other week). Here’s the latest:

Do you have a farm or the space in your yard for a new best friend?

Our own famous #megapigrome featured on Hometown Healines is still up for adoption.

He was discovered running around a downtown Rome shopping center and is looking for his furever home.

He is a very mild-mannered pot-bellied pig who weighs around 100 pounds. He would make a great addition to any person’s yard or farm.

He has no adoption fee and is available on a first-come first-served basis. You can bring him home today!

He can be adopted at PAWS at 99 N. Ave. NE in Rome. We are open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 1 until 5 p.m. Saturday.
