AlleyCATS holding book sale, AGM this weekend

The AGM is expected to elect a new board of directors and go over financial statements

The AlleyCATS Alliance is holding a pair of events this week, including their annual general meeting on Sunday and a book sale on Saturday.

“For those folks still enjoying the archaic method of ink on paper, we invite you to join us by donating your used books and attending the sale rain or shine,” says a release from AlleyCATS on the book sale.

That event is set to run 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at #109-2203 Dartmouth Drive, across from the Penticton SPCA.

Funds are going back into the nonprofit, toward efforts to rescue, spay and neuter “as many cats as possible.”

The group is also holding its annual general meeting at 11 a.m. on Sunday, where the group is expected to go over its financial statements and elect the board of directors.

Voting is open to members only, but AlleyCATS organizers say they will be available to talk goals and accomplishments of the organization “and brainstorm for the coming year.”

Snacks will be available, and organizers will demonstrate protocol for trapping cats.

People can RSVP by email at alleycatsoffice@gmail.com.
