GOODBYE SUMMER, HELLO FALL

As we approach the unofficial end of summer, there are still many things to do and attractions to visit in our own backyard. We have brought you the next installment of local treasures that you may not have thought to visit. Enjoy Fall Festivals and the waning days of our outdoor concerts and shows. We have a featured non-profit, a featured adoptable pet, and a new online bulletin board to facilitate private pet adoptions. In addition, let's remember the 12th anniversary of 9/11; consider participating in a commemorative 9/11 event.

This issue is sponsored by Sesame Place, where you can celebrate being a kid, or being a kid again! Spend Labor Day weekend with everyone's favorite Sesame Street friends. On Sept 1, experience the park's "C... is for Celebrate!" fireworks show, set to Sesame Street music. Rock out with Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster and Count von Count as their music fills the air and the sky is covered with colorful bursts of brilliance. Sesame Place also has an exciting line-up of fall concerts.  Super Why Live! kicks off the fun on September 7-8 followed by Yo Gabba Gabba's DJ Lance Rock & Friends who perform on September 14-15 and finally Caillou's Musical Playdate runs September 21-22.  Reservations are available now.

FEATURED NON-PROFIT: QUILTS FOR KIDS
Quilts for Kids

We recently found out about a wonderful local charity, Quilts for Kids, that is turning tears into smiles. Volunteers transform scraps of fabric into patchwork quilts that comfort children with life-threatening illnesses and children of abuse. Because of allergens, children often cannot bring their stuffed animals to hospitals. However, most hospitals welcome these washable, all-cotton quilts. Make a difference in the lives of these children by participating in a walk to benefit Quilt for Kids on Sept 28th at Shady Brook Farms in Yardley, PA. You can join a team, start one of your own, and take the family to spend the day at the farm.

REMEMBERING 9/11
Visit the Poconos We are fast approaching the 12 year anniversary of 9/11. To commemorate this day and to honor those who lost their lives, BucksCountyAlive.com has compiled a list of events that are occurring in our region. If you know of a 9/11 event that we do not have on our list, please let us know.
NEW FEATURE: PET ADOPTION FROM LOCAL RESIDENTS
Pet Adoption

Sometimes the pets we love can no longer live with us - maybe it is allergies, the birth of a child, or the need to move to a place that does not welcome furry friends. Whatever the reason, BucksCountyAlive.com wants to help you find a good home for your pet. We have created an online bulletin board where you can post a photo and description of the pet that you can no longer keep. Hopefully, this bulletin board will help you find a new family to love your pet.

FEATURED ADOPTABLE SHELTER PET
Adobtable Pet, Pet Guide and Pet Adoption

Meet Boots, an extra large (more to love) domestic short hair in need of a permanent home. He is a super-friendly 9 year old that is neutered, up to date on all shots, and micro-chipped. He adores the company of humans, but does not enjoy all cats. To arrange a meeting with this big boy, call the Animal Lifeline Thrift Store at 215-343-5050 or visit them at 1111 Easton Rd, Warrington Pavilion Shopping Center (215-343-5050). Check out our Pet Adoption Directory to find more animals in need of your help.
