The Cub Scout pack our sons belong to wanted to end their regular year with a focus on a community service/community involvement program. They are hoping to encourage the boys to be involved in some type of activity that gives back to the community over the summer.

The pack leader called to see if we would be willing to put on the program. The weekend of May 21-22, (on one day or the other) we will be having a two hour meeting with approximately 1.5 hours dedicated to greyhound discussion, from RFA to adoption itself. We are very excited for this opportunity!

If anyone on this board would be interested in traveling to Marshall, MN, we are looking for volunteer greyhounds to help show the kids (and their parents), what fabulous pets greyhounds make. Axel, who is willing to roach on the floor of PetSmart at M & G's, is up for the challenge, but we aren't sure there is enough of him to go around if he is the only one there.

Wow - what a great opportunity to talk about greyhounds!

I live too far away to bring my three monsters along for the Boy Scouts unforunately LOL I hope Axel can find some company!

Let us know if there's anything else we can do to help though.

Dave & Becki,

Great opportunity to discuss greyhounds.

Do you think Vera can get a video of one of Becki's wins? Could be shown in conjunction with the talk to show what a race is like and how Indie will be contributing.

Not sure if I will be out there that week.

Sounds wonderful, I only wish I was closer. Best of luck with your program!
