Annual Reunion Picnic

Summer is flying by quickly and August 19th will be here before you know it so remember to RSVP for the Reunion Picnic if you have not done so already. It's not too late! We've extended the deadline to August 10th.
All EGRR adopters, volunteers, members and their dogs are invited. EGRR will provide eating utensils, hamburgers, garden burgers, hot dogs and dessert. Please bring a salad or side dish to share and your own beverages.  Nick Thain, our volunteer with the funny accent from “down under” J will be back at the grill and those who went last year will attest to his excellent cooking skills.
We are most fortunate to be able to use this camp and we will be the only ones there!  It is located on the Cedar River and is very private. There is a covered picnic area, running water, bathrooms and includes a large sports field where an Agility course will be set up.  We will have some games like last year and other door prizes. A Booster Bath will be raffled with proceeds going to cover the veterinary costs of foster dogs.  The main purpose, however, is to provide a relaxing afternoon for you with your dogs among other Golden lovers. It is also a wonderful opportunity for EGRR volunteers to see the “fruits of our labor” - happy adoptive families with their wonderful dogs!

Here are the specifics:

Date: Sunday, August 19, 2012   Noon – 3 PM
Location: Lion’s Day Camp;  21230 SE 184th St.  Maple Valley, WA 

Send your RSVP to Pat Jordan at  patcarrj@gmail.com    
Please note that EGRR is also participating in Macy’s Shop for a Cause which will be held on Saturday, August 25th. Tickets for this are $5.00 and you are automatically entered in a contest to win a $500 Macy’s Gift card. EGRR receives 100% of the ticket sales (that’s right, the $5 you pay to attend this event goes entirely to EGRR) so it’s a “win-win” for everyone. Tickets can be purchased  on-line from our website http://www.egrr.net/macys-fundraiser/  Gail Miller is heading up this project and she will also have tickets at the picnic that you can buy. 
Hope to see you all there on the 19th !!
