Another Round Two Dedication

Thanks to Newburyport Tea House Licorice & Sloe and their fundraising efforts, we now have yet another moun- tain dedication. A couple visiting Licorice & Sloe from Washington, D.C., found out about our efforts, logged onto our website, dedicated two mountains and made a wonderful donation to Angell Animal Medical Center. Now Licorice & Sloe strikes again. A Newburyport couple (Mike Tohivsky & Janet Morris) discovered our website while at Licorice & Sloe and has dedicated a mountain to their late cat, Byron (above right). Here is their dedication to Byron: "We’d like to dedicate your round two hike of Moosilauke, our first NH 4000-footer, to our cat Byron, who passed away one year ago. To our dear, beautiful Byron: We hope you’re in a peaceful place with trees to climb, squirrels to chase, and other cool cats to keep you company. We miss you terribly. You are in our hearts, always." As of now 59 peaks have been dedicated with all money being donated to Angell Animal Medical Center and there are 37 open for dedication.
