$10 on March 10

If every member of the Friends of the Hays Dog Park donated $10 on March 10, the day of Match Madness through the Heartland Community Foundation, we would make $5000, PLUS the HCF would match part of those funds.  Please plan on giving $10 on the 10th!!  You can mail the check to our mailbox (PO Box 1614) and I will turn it in on the 10th OR you can take your check directly to the HCF at the Welcome Center that day.  Thanks for your support of the Hays Dog Park!!

Several weeks ago I was at a well known Kansas town for some personal business and I decided to go see their dog park. It was on the outskirts of town, hidden in an area that I didn’t really feel safe in. It was small–the small dog area about half the size of ours and the large dog areas a third the size. And this was in a town that was TWICE the size of Hays! It did have some nice shade though. It made me realize how lucky we are here in Hays to have a City Commission and Park Dept that believed in this project and donors who gave generously. Thanks to everyone who made this project possible!!!
