Donations for Garage Sale Needed


It will soon be time for our annual Friends of the Hays Dog Park Garage Sale. This year we are trying to raise funds to get 3 shelters at the dog park for some needed shade. The shelters and concrete are approximately $7500.00. If you have excess furniture or household goods the FHDP would gladly accept their donations. We will accept all items that are in saleable condition, except for clothing and shoes. The sale date is August 15–16 at the old Fashion Bug on the South side of The Mall. Donated items may be brought to the Fashion Bug on August 13th and 14th from 6pm to 9pm. If you need to get your donations out of the house before that date, please call Laurie Mortinger at 785-635-5616 to make different arrangements.

If you know of any individual, or a business, who would be interested in donating the funds to purchase a shelter, we will have a plaque made and displayed at the shelter as the donor.

Thank you for your help.

Good news Friends: starting tomorrow we will sell 29 more bricks to be installed at the Hays Dog Park! Because the plan changed a bit on where they would be installed, we realized that we have 29 more spaces that we could fill with engraved bricks! It will be first come, first serve until we have sold all 29. The cost will be $100. So if you missed your chance last time…you have a second chance. But act quick! I will post the form with instructions by this time tomorrow evening.


Bricks Are In!

Went to the park in case someone showed up and didn’t know the clean-up was cancelled….and learned that the bricks have been installed! When it dries up a bit….you should come visit your brick!!!
