The Weyburn Community Dog Park Committee launched a new fundraiser at their first annual meeting last week. The committee made several decisions regarding the building of the off-leash dog park this summer and were pleased to have some new members attend the meeting and show their support of the project.

The fundraiser is the "Poop Scoop Patrol" in which members of the committee will clean resident's yards of winter leavings. For $50 per dog, the Poop Scoop Patrol will arrange a convenient time to clean up and dispose of a dog's waste. The fundraiser will only run until the end of April.Bookings can be made by calling Bill at 861-5336 or emailing weyburndogpark@gmail.com.

The committee has been faced with two choices for fencing and have decided to go with a page wire fence instead of a chain link fence.Once the ground is fairly dry, installation of the fence will begin.At that time, the Dog Park Committee will be in need of donations of equipment, lots of labour and additional funds for benches and other amenities.

As well, the committee will provide their second annual "Poop Scoopin' Boogie" along Tatagwa Parkway, as well as Jubilee and River Parks.This event is planned for 10 a.m. the morning of Saturday, April 30 with the annual RDOG Walk and obedience demonstration beginning at noon. All activities will take place at the Weyburn Community Dog Park on First Avenue NW and Almer Street. All are welcome at both events with or without their canine companions - for all or part of the day.

The members of the Committee also took time to thank the City of Weyburn for their support in terms of the location of the dog park and the offer of chain link fencing. A number of other businesses, organizations and individuals from in and around Weyburn were also acknowledged for their support. A sign will be erected in the park to publicly recognize donations.

Members of the executive that were elected/re-elected at the meeting were Bill Allen (chairperson), Janna Holtz (vice chairperson), Roxy Hortness (secretary), and Amanda Skogberg (treasurer).
