Class of 1956 to have reunion


Bow Wow Luau is Sunday

CLINTON — ABC’s eighth annual Bow Wow Luau will be Sunday, Aug. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Riverview Swimming Pool along the riverfront in Clinton.

This is a chance for dogs and their owners to share the experience of splashing and swimming together, and supports a really great cause at the same time. There is a $6 per dog admission fee with all proceeds going towards Animal Birth Control.

During this event, dogs will be off leash, but must be under their owner’s control at all times. Wading pools will be available for the very small breeds. Waste bags will be available, and owners are required to pickup after their dogs. Please bring your own towels. And don’t forget your camera — there will be tons of opportunities for great pictures.

ABC will also have Jaime from Grooming by Jaime on site offering free nail trims for your dogs. Donations would be accepted, with those going to Animal Birth Control.

There will also be a lemonade stand with lemonade, cookies and snacks for sale by ABC members with proceeds going to the ABC Yager Fund. The Yager Fund helps with emergency vet bills and has been funded by donations alone, but is now getting depleted.

Animal Birth Control is a local non-profit organization dedicated to providing low-cost spay and neuter surgeries for area pets. The luau is one of its biggest events.

For more information, call Judy at 243-6276. This event is co-sponsored by ABC and the Clinton Department of Parks and Recreation.
