Blessing of the Animals
Saturday, October 1 from 2 – 5 p.m.

Robert Johnson, Pastor of New Hanover Presbyterian Church, will bless the animals at a special service at 4 p.m.

Join us for hot dogs, cookies and lemonade as we celebrate the special blessing that we receive from our pets as we bless them.

Steve Jackson, ABC Certified Dog Trainer and owner of Family Dog Training Services, will hold a dog training exhibition and answer your questions about your dog. Steve is usually booked 6-8 weeks in advance for his dog training abilities as well as managing a local animal hospital, so this is your chance to get great advice about your pet.
