A-DOG Booth a Success at Town Day 2009!

A-DOG’s booth at Arlington Town Day, 2009 was much fun and another big success!  Highlights:  We collected 192 signatures on our petition for off-leash recreation in Arlington.  This should bring us to over 900 signers!  Volunteers at the booth reported that residents were lining up and waiting patiently to sign, showing that support for this issue is as strong as ever in Arlington!  If you missed us at Town Day, you can, of course, still sign the petition online.  We also signed up several new members, including new neighbors just moving to Arlington.  We sold some T shirts and took orders for more.  Six lucky winners were selected in our free drawing, winning great gifts generously donated by businesses and individuals who support us.  The prizes and winners were:  Gift certificate good for one day of daycare at Crate Escapes (Belmont) or Raining Cats and Dogs (Cambridge) — Wendy Richter and Pam Byron;  Gift certificate good for 2 dozen cookies from Lakota Bakery — Betsy Leonder;  One pound of coffee from Starbuck’s Arlington Heights manager Rachel — Emily Page; and a wrought iron “pawprint” leash hook, made in North Conway NH and donated by an A-DOG member — Teleia Pastore. Congratulations to all our winners and WELCOME to our new A-DOG members.  And, thank-you to all our wonderful volunteers at our Town Day booth!  And, thanks, again to our business Friends of A-DOG for their continued support!  Stay tuned for more photos of Town Day, 2009.
