Sisters is Gonna ‘Have a Waggin’ Good Time
Saturday, August 16 is a day for the dogs. Come out and bring your favorite canine-bring them all-to the Sisters Doggie Dash Run/Walk starting at 9 am at Sisters Park & Recreation (SPRD). Friends of the Sisters Library has partnered with SPRD, The Dog Art Show at the Artworks, and Furry Friends Foundation to host a fun event for the entire family.
There will be pet entertainment, pet product vendors and food vendors for everyone-both people and pets. A 5K walk/run and a 2-mile walk, with or without your canine friend, is open to all ages. The well-marked route from SPRD through shaded US Forest Service trails will work off some of that extra energy. Don’t have a dog? No worries-several nonprofits will have dogs available for loan and/or adoption.
Early registration for the Doggie Dash Walk/Run is through August 14: $25/participant or $50 for up to 3 participants; $5 extra to register morning of the event. All registrants receive a 2014 free membership to Friends of the Sisters Library. Register online ( www.sistersrecreation.com), pick up a registration form at the Library, then drop applications off at SPRD. Leash and rabies vaccination tags/proof required. The first 100 who register will receive a commemorative gift and doggie goody bag.
So bring the kids, the dogs and be prepared for lots of entertainment for a great cause. All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Sisters Library, in partnership with Furry Friends Foundation, and SPRD.
