2nd Annual Paws on the Pavement Community Dog Walk

Sunday, October 19th, 1:00 till 3:00 (raindate October 26th) Meet at Mt. Airy Animal Hospital (114 E. Mt. Airy Avenue; parking lot behind Holy Cross Church). The walk will start promptly at 1:30.

        We’re inviting your dog(s) to a party! Join us for a walk through the neighborhood, with lots of family-friendly activitiesback at the gathering site. Vendors will include a professional pet photographer & folks selling pet-related (cats, too) merchandise & goodies.

          You don’t have to have a dog to have fun……...there will be a demo by trainers of canine search & rescue dogs, kids’ art activities(including face painting) by the Community Art Collective, & hot dogs (what else?) & beverages for sale.

          Note: It’s an Eagles “bye week”, so you won’t have to miss watching a game.

          A dollar a dog will help us cover expenses, & the event is free for paid EMAN members & patients of the Animal Hospital. (Donations will be, of course, gratefully accepted.)

And of course, for everyone's safety, all dogs must be on leash.

          This event is presented by East Mt. Airy Neighbors, the Mt.Airy Animal Hospital, & Queenie’s Pets.

                    Before you ask………………We have addressed the

                         food volume problem we had last year,

                              & there will be plenty this year!

                            Come & sample the dishes & vote!

EMAN’s chefs this year are:

          Larry Daniels, EMAN’s Board President

          Laura Siena, former E.D. of WMAN & wonderful community activist

          David Young, E.D. of the historic Cliveden of the National Trust        

          This fun, informal event highlights the diversity of the neighborhood………… I’ve seen all the recipes, & it’s an eclectic assortment (including vegetarian dishes). It might be hard to choose your favorite & vote, but we hope you’ll come & try!

          It also raises funds for 3 worthy nonprofit organizations here in Northwest Philly: EMAN, Awbury Arboretum & the Lutheran Seminary. Tickets are $50 in advance, $60 at the door.

          You can get tickets, learn more about all the chefs, support a chef with a donation, & get lots of details atwww.ltsp.edu/CookinWithWho

We hope to see you at both events!
