St. Nick’s Dog Run Clean-Up Day a Huge Success!

The group got through a huge pile of woodchips!

We had a huge turnout for our woodchip workday today. We were able to finish the giant woodchip pile off, fill in doggie holes, secure some fencing and pick up litter around the run. We are set for Spring and Summer! The dogs immediately began to bound in the woodchips and they love it. Thanks to all who helped and helped promote it for us! More photos below.

Our next event at the dog run is our coffee bark which is on Saturday, April 3rd from 9am to 11am (right before our Easter Festival). See you there!
