An art contest is being sponsored, and the winning logo design will be printed on the front of one hundred or more T-shirts.
T-shirts will be sold for a low price of $2 or less in an effort to get people in the neighborhood, especially the youngsters, to wear the shirts and help publicize the value of supporting our local police.
Each and every art contestant will receive a free T-shirt, and the winning artist will receive a free T-shirt plus a cash award of $25.

Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
