Please plan to join us for the annual reunion on Saturday, Oct. 20th from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the Thomas and Marian Ludwig Adoption & Activity Center at Golden Gateway. This event is open to DVGRR-adopted graduates, their canine siblings, and their humans. (All dogs must remain on lead during the event; no flexis.)
The event will kick off with a costume parade beginning promptly at 11:15, with prizes for the most original dog costume (poodle skirt, anyone?), most original dog/human combo costume, funniest, and scariest.
Special feature: Author Patti Kerr will discuss her book, Magical Dogs 2, at 12:30 p.m. This great book features stories from some of our DVGRR adopters. In addition, Patti will be signing books during the event. Her book will be available for sale that day for $17.95 with 10% of book sales donated to DVGRR. (If you aren’t able to attend the reunion but would like to purchase a copy of the book, download and print this form to order your copy of either of Patti’s books. 2018 Reunion Flyer Order2 For help, please email Inza Adams, Development and Donor Engagement Manger [firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Of course there will be plenty of great food, fun, and shopping at Pap’s Place!
