Volunteer Appreciation 

Thank you to the 42 volunteers who gave their time to make this year’s Paws in the Park a wonderful success. About 200 runners with dogs & many families were able to enjoy the day because of your fantastic service. A special thanks to the VIPs (Volunteers Impact Parks) for their expertise in organizing vendors and working with parking.
