Saint Nicholas Park Dog Run Establishes Itself as Separate Entity; Introduces New Look for Group

 

The Dog Run at Saint Nicholas Park introduces a new logo and newsletter!

INTRODUCING OUR NEW LOOK

We are thrilled to announce a new logo for the dog run!

We wish to provide a more polished presence for you, our patrons, so you will feel more ownership and pride in our amazing (and sometimes dusty) dog run.We also hope this will help give our space an identity that everyone will feel a part of. As our run is 100% community + volunteer-run, it is our hope to be more visible and understood as a separate entity from the NYC Parks Department.

One of our own, Tyler Fields (Brixton’s dad), designed our logo. He is working to have multiple variations to represent the various breeds and colors of all our furry friends. Today, we are launching with Dalmatian and Fawn.

If you would like to submit a coloring that represents your dog we would love to feature it in a future newsletter and even post it at the run! When you’re done you may submit your creation here.

St Nicholas Park Dog Run Community Meeting, June 12th @ 6:30 pm

Hello Friends,

As we are reaching one of our first milestones on GoFundMe, we would like to invite you to our first ever Dog Run Community Meeting at 6:30pm, June 12th; we are in the process of securing a venue. As we would like to provide food for this meeting, please use this link to RSVP if you will be able to join us or not in order to help us ensure enough space and bites for our group.

Our first major task/goal is to apply for the tax exempt status under the section 501(c)(3) of the IRS code. We would appreciate anyone with experience doing such to come and help us do so.

Other points on the agenda (detailed agenda is below), will be fundraising/capital improvement projects, community involvement, and other points we would love to get your input on.

We hope that you are able to join us and help make the run a better place for your dog, for you, and for everyone. We kindly request that you leave your dog(s) at home for this meeting.
