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.
