Dog Swim Registration Now Open!
By Sharyn Fitzgerald, Arlington Village Dog Swim Committee
We can’t wait to see you and your pups on September 14th from 5:30-7:30 for another great doggie day at the pool!
Registration is now open for the Jim Walton Memorial Dog Swim at Arlington Village. Registration forms can be downloaded from the Arlington Village website (www.arlingtonvillage.com
Please also join us at 5:20 for a short dedication by State Senator Patsy Ticer in memory of our former neighbor LTC Jim Walton, for whom the Dog Swim is named. Jim, active in past dog swim planning, lost his life earlier this summer while serving in Afghanistan.
We encourage spectators to attend the Swim! Please note that there will be a minimum donation of $1 per person for spectators. Also, if you will be bringing children, we will ask that you sign a waiver upon entry to the pool area.
A new feature at this year’s swim is that we’ll have dog treats for sale! The treats we're making include fruit (apple and banana), meat (chicken and beef), and peanut-butter flavored biscuits. They're all home-made with all natural dog- (and cat and human)-safe ingredients. Look out for Buster's Peanut Butter Bones, Willow's Apple Drops, and Molly's Beef Bites. Treats will be offered for a suggested donation of $1.
