The dog day was great! There was a big turnout and everyone had a lot of fun, even the Leos, although we all had to work really hard!
That week a hurricane came by that almost prevented us from having the event. Fortunately it didn’t come ashore and the day was blustery but bright and sunny.
I was in charge of the Kidz Zone with Michelle (who is also an Easton Leo) and we had to keep an eye on a bunch of little kids. We had a great time helping the kids make arts and crafts and playing with their CUTE dogs!! I think it made a lot of kids happy to have a place that they could hang out, while being involved in all kinds of activities.
There were dogs of all kinds everywhere and they were all adorable! Fidelco had a booth and attended with a couple of guide dogs in training, they did a guide dog demo in the morning. All of the vendors were really nice, some had great stuff to sell, while others were very informative, and of course most brought their own dogs. Our advisors (Nicoline and Marnie) did a WONDERFUL job overseeing everything and kicking our butts into shape. We owe them so much.
The day was long and full of all kinds of dog related activities and events. My friend Michelle said that, “the dog day was an experience I’ll always remember”, seeing a bright smile on every person’s face made it totally worthwhile even apart from all funds that we raised that day for the Town of Easton Animal Shelter and Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. I was glad about the turn out and I was happy to help such a great cause.” The other Leo’s had a similar reaction, all feeling that we did a great thing for our town and community while having fun!
We can’t wait to start on new projects to help people!
