On Saturday, June 9th, another annual fundraising event was held in Beautiful Joe Park - the first walk-a-thon called “Strut Your Mutt” with the proceeds for this year's event going towards the cost of creating the newest of Park monuments to be erected in Beautiful Joe Park.
This monument is dedicated to Margaret Marshall Saunders, author of the novel ‘Beautiful Joe’ and is the latest in an array of monuments that has been designed and placed in the Park to pay tribute to animals and in recognition of the life’s work of MM Saunders, one of the first animal rights advocates.
The event was attended by some 27 dogs and over 20 of their human companions and raised approximately $1,000 towards the cost of the new tribute in the park. The rain held back long enough for the people and their dogs to walk the 2.5 or 3.5k routes.
“Judging by the photos and considering it was the first annual walk-a-thon, we think we can say it was a huge success!” says Viv Baker from BJHS.
Organizers have extended thanks to their many sponsors who donated merchandise for the prize table - Grandma Lambe’s, Suzie’s Place, Captains Corner Fish & Chips, The Leeky Canoe Pub & Eatery, Markdale Veterinary Services/Blue Mountain Veterinary Services, Simply Unique Flowers & Gifts, The Meaford Hall Arts & Cultural Centre, Stuff to Read, Muxlow Pharmasave, Blossom Health Club for Women, The Candle Factory, Mantra Yoga Studio, Solitudes Spa & Tanning Studio, Fotos & Flowers, The Waggin Tail Café, Hollyhock Tearoom & Gift Shop, Christine Smith all contributed.
Several sponsors also contributed items for gift bags - Tina Gray TD Bank, The Movie Experts, New Orleans Pizza, Kingstone Chiropractic, The Waggin Tail Café, The Perogie Palace, McGintys, Blue Mountain Veterinary Services, Loyall Pet Foods, Bluewater Feeds, and for the free doggie bandanas!- thanks go out to Lynda Stephens & Viv Baker.
Organizers are also grateful to the "Strut Your Mutt" committee, without whom none of this would have taken place and Joyce Taylor for her vision and for the use of the Waggin Tail Cafe for committee meetings.
Finally, the BJHS would like to give a special thank you to the talented creator of the new monument as well as other monuments in Beautiful Joe Park including the dear statue of Joe at the entrance-- Gunter Neumann. Gunter's tireless efforts for Beautiful Joe and for the community as a whole, are much appreciated.
