The dog park finally has running water. Here’s an update from MLT DOG president, Jim Ito:
Thanks to all of you for your support in making this water project happen! Your donations, encouragement, time, and hard work paid off!
Special thanks to Nic Holcomb, Kjell Hansen, Alicia Hanson, Evelyn Harrison, Alanna Clare, Elaine Evans, and Ann Nygaard for all the digging, hauling dirt and river rock, and more digging in the rainy weather.
Also, Jim and Cat Skoor deserve a huge amount of thanks for setting up a canopy and providing a delicious layout of homemade banana bread, oatmeal cookies, and rice crispy treats!!! Jim was buying Starbucks for us Thursday morning and mentioned the work party to the staff at the Ballinger Starbucks. They provided two to-go carafes of coffee for free! Regular AND decaf with all the trimmings! The treats made the work party much more enjoyable!
If you stop in at the Ballinger location, let them know of your appreciation. I will be sending them an official letter from MLT D.O.G. soon.
I’d like to thank
We are still in need of donations as we depleted our account to make this project happen sooner than later. Among the items on the wish list are a new banner (for parades, booths, etc.), supplies, and maybe even a more permanent drinking fountain that has human and canine fountains built into the same unit.
Our volunteer-run dog park has benefited greatly from our supportive members, visitors, Eagle Scouts, and members of the City. Thank you so much!
