WINTER 2013 RDOG NEWSLETTER
RDOG members responded in droves to our two restaurant nights. We had a successful 10th Anniversary Party. The dead trees were removed from the Park. Last, but not least, the Hamden Dog Park now has running water! A solar light and reforestation are on the radar for 2013. A big thank you to Lenny Young who was the driving force to these accomplishments!
Tentative Winter RDOG meeting: Save the date: Wed. Jan 23 @ 7:00 pm. Any interested party is welcome!! Confirmation and location to follow.
Did you know?
Jan. 6 is known as the Feast of the Epiphany, Little Christmas and Three Kings’ Day. In New Orleans it is the beginning of the Carnival Season. Carnival cumulates on Mardi Gras which is always the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.
This year Mardi Gras falls on Tuesday February 12th! We are planning a soirée to introduce you to some of the food, music, and customs of Mardi Gras on Sunday February 10th. Do you think all New Orleans food is “blackened” or too spicy? Do you think Cajun and Creole are the same? Then please read this flyer and see what our Mardi Gras party is all about! Join us for the allure, the intrigue, and the flavors of the Big Easy! Click here for information. Tickets are available now.
Public Works Director Craig Cesare and Mayor’s Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Julie Smith will be present for a special Meet & Greet with our group. This is your opportunity to shake their hands and thank them for the recent improvements to Bassett Field and the Hamden Dog Park!
2013 Baseball Pool
We will try to have another 13 Run Pool again in 2013. The Dog Park netted around $500 in 2011 and we had a whole lot of fun.
Click here for instructions. You can sign up individually or with your business name.
You do not need to frequent our park, or even own a dog, to help us out with this promotion.
In 2011, there were thirty, 13 run games in the regular season.
13 people clearly came out ahead, 3 people came out dead even, 7 people (including myself) won money but did not cover their initial investment, and 3 people made donations.
