Let the Celebration Begin! – 2019 The Year Of The Dog … Park

Actually 2018 was the year of the dog and 2019 brings us the year of the pig. But who cares!  The motto is “If at first you don’t succeed… try, try, again”.  Yoda said it better… “There is no TRY just do, or do not” and the Ad Hoc Committee did it!

What’s Happening With The Dog Park?

At the last BOD meeting the Committee presented a greatly reduced budget and new proposed location. There was agreement that the location, near the old water treatment plant, mitigated concerns about negative impact on open space views, the gardens, or neighboring homes.  The committee presented a significantly reduced, well researched budget.   The board approved the resolution and gave the go ahead to spend up to $20,000 for preliminary steps to get the project started.  Next steps will be a city required conceptual drawing, a survey, and obtaining city approval & permits.

Would Your Dog Be A Good Therapy Dog? 

The clubs first meeting for 2019 is Tuesday, January 22nd at the West Rec 4pm – 6pm.

Donna Forst of “Paws 4 Healing” is our guest speaker.  If you ever thought about taking your dog for nursing home visits, or to a library to sit read with children, you will not want to miss this presentation.  All sorts of dogs can be certified, young, old, big & small.  Come hear all about how this organization is improving the lives of people and how you can be a part of it.
