Thanks to supporters of Walkin’ the Dog for Charity

To the editor:

The 2014 4-H Walkin’ the Dog for Charity Committee would like to thank all those that supported this year’s walk. Thank you to the 50 walkers, their 38 dogs, and those that sponsored walkers to help raise $11,594.50 benefitting Ronald McDonald House of Danville.

Thank you to local businesses, 4-H Clubs, and individuals who donated merchandise and gift cards to the Walkin’ the Dog Auction. The auction raised in excess of $1,100. Thank you to businesses and individuals who donated items to fill goodie bags for the first 50 walkers. Many thanks to the Juniata County 4-H Clubs, leaders and members that helped with registration, food stand, greeters, etc. We also appreciate those that participated with displays, shows and educational programs the day of the walk.

During the past 15 years, the Walkin’ the Dog for Charity has raised a grand total of $174,526.85.

Truly a successful community service project for all those involved in supporting this event!
