All indications are that Pintail Landfill/Green Group Holdings intends to continue to pursue its twice rejected landfill permit and to persist in its litigious ways for now.
To ensure our readiness to meet current and anticipated legal costs and expenses for our continued success, CALH is planning “We STILL Stand United”, a fourth fundraising dinner/auction event which we have scheduled for Saturday, July 29, 2017, at Hempstead’s KC Hall (see attached flyer for details).
Following in the footsteps of our successful fundraising events of the past, we will have a delicious rib-eye steak dinner with all the trimmings, live music, as well as live and silent auctions and a ‘more than a’ Market. We are extremely thankful to report that the costs of the entire meal are already covered by generous donors, as are the band expenses. We hope that you will participate in as many ways as possible and offer the following information to that end:
Event Tickets are now on sale (only $25 in advance!) at several locations: in Hempstead at Schwarz Hardware, Steinhauser's, Frazier's, Hotline Press and Hempstead Theater; in Waller at Carl's BBQ and Coldwell Banker Waller; and in Field Store at Amsler & Associates. Get your tickets early! For further ticket information, please call 979-826 4839.

Live and Silent Auction: A few items have already been donated including an ATV, an exquisite Persian rug, and two AR-15s! Yet many auction Items will be needed for both live and silent auctions. Remember CALH is a 501(c)3 and your generous donation is tax deductible! We will soon be publishing an album of auction donations on our Facebook page, offering public acknowledgement to donors if they wish.

‘more than a’ Market: The ‘more than a’ Garage Sale team will be putting together something new at this year’s dinner/auction: a ‘more than a’ Market! This will be a shopping experience similar to our past Garage Sales with beautiful vintage, collectible, décor type items, and the team is looking for donations. For further Market information or if you have donations, please call Sandy Huntsinger 281-543-9284.
We so appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and concerted efforts to make this fundraising event a success. Unity and tenacity, along with a love of our community, not to mention a proven cause, have brought us this far and, continuing along this path, there is no doubt that we will prevail.
