Tail-waggin’ good times had by all at Fraser Valley’s Doggie Drag

To the Editor:The 11th Annual Grand County Pet Pals Doggie Drag on the beautiful trails of Grand Park in Fraser was a success thanks to many in our community and around the country.A sunny morning sent more than 140 participants and their excited furry friends on the trails. A nice snack buffet and silent auction awaited the participants when they returned. The talented Jim Kroepfl provided musical entertainment while the canines and their people mingled. With over 30 volunteers we were able to make this a smooth event that raised over $11,000 to help with our mission of responsible pet ownership through spay/neuter and educational programs.We would like to thank the following for their generous support. Clark Lipscomb and the Grand Park team for our fun run/walk space and for the wonderful venue for registration and silent auction in the new Century 21 Real Estate and Winter Park Market building.
