Membership meetings will now be held every quarter (January, April, June, September) on the 4th Wednesday of the given month at 6:30 pm.
As we approach Winter and seems like the rain won’t stop, one mightthink the last place they would want to take their pet would be the dog park. And while most dog parks become amudfestwhen it rains, K-9 Corner continues to be the cleanest dog park in the city with it’s combination of faux grass and pebbles. Bring your pooch and come experience it for yourself.
