“We worked with them on a benefit last Christmas and
it's good cause,” Atkinson said. For $10, pets will receive

Waggin' Tails DogRescue is based inNorthville and is a
501©3 non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to
rescuing, caring for and placing animals into homes and
prevent homeless dogs from being euthanized or sold to
research laboratories.
Waggin' Tails does not own a shelter or kennel. All dogs
taken in are moved to a volunteer foster home for individ-
ual attention, medical care and a temporary home. The
group is looking for volunteers and foster homes and is
funded solely by donations.
Atkinson, who spent 25 years in the industrial uniform
business before taking a chance on his own business, said
that he enjoys the interaction with the pets and the own-
ers every day.
“It beatsworking,” he saidwith a laugh.
Atkinson is suggesting reservations for the event which
are available at the store, 550 Forest St. in downtown
Plymouth, (734) 453-9663.
Good Humor, indeed…
Sue Berardi, right, a Canton Township resident, will be
at the Plymouth Fall Festival this weekend offering the
original-recipe Good Humor Ice Creams as a fundrais-
er for the Plymouth High School Wrestling Team from
her vintage truck. This is her second year at the festival
working to help generate some money for the team.
Berardi and her husband found the truck on ebay
about three years ago and decided it might be a neat
way to earn some extra money. The truck is stored in a
garage during the winter months. Her husband and
members of the wrestling team will be on hand to help
her at the festival selling the $1.50 to $3 treats on Main
Street just off Penniman.
