I'm so excited--we're getting a dog park!!!!!!
I found out about it a week or so ago at the Pet Extravaganza, and signed up to be on the committee. The first meeting was last night, and I couldn't go, but my husband went.
The land is already there, 3 acres given by the trustees of the park, so the first order of business is fencing. They had some people there to do estimates, and the lowest one was $10,000.
My husband is going to call the owner of the landscape company who did our fencing and speak with him about this project, since he is a dog lover, and see what they can do on it.
Anyway, regardless of how much the fencing is going to cost, we still need to raise money. We need to put in trash cans, water, enclose a gated entrance way, and then further down the road they want to put in a pavilion, benches, agility courses and all kinds of fun stuff.
Besides just going out and asking people for money, do any of you have any creative ideas for fundrasing? We want to break ground as soon as the weather permits in the spring, so I'd like to start raising money ASAP.
Any and all ideas are welcome.
Thanks in advance
