Thursday, Feb. 25th in the Cedar Key city park from 4 to 5 pm. Come meet two wonderful Canine Companions and their owners.
Bring your favorite pooch in costume or just as himself, and take part in the parade. There will be prizes in unusual categories!
We will also have a photographer there to take your dog’s picture for a small fee.
Registration will take place at 3:30—in the park. People and doggie treats will be served, and it is all free!
The event is being planned to raise awareness for the Canine Companions for Wounded Veterans Initiative, a cause for which the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in Florida is raising funds. Funds are used to train Canine Companions which are given to Wounded Veterans at no charge. Donations will be welcome at the Doggies in the Park event!
In 2015 a total of $1500 was raised by the CKWC for this cause. Our island community has been very generous in its support of CKWC fund raising for Support Our Troops and for Fisher House of Gainesville. Come to the park on Feb. 25th and join us whether you have a dog or not—–just share the fun!
