Add some warmth and fun to your fall season by attending the seventh annual Meow and Chow. This popular soup supper and bingo night returns Saturday, Oct. 15. The fundraiser is hosted by The Cat House (TCH) and Lincoln Animal Ambassadors (LAA). All proceeds go towards operating expenses for these two non-profit organizations.
