Comments:The Second Annual Indiana Shiba Picnic will be on August 12, 2006 at
10:00 a.m. at Broad Ripple Park in Indianapolis. The park is
nestled along the scenic White River amidst towering shade trees.
We'll have our own shelter with a grill. There's a Dog Park
available for a fee of $2.00. You must present proof of current
inoculations for Rabies, Parvo, Distemper and Bordetella. The park
office is open from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for you to fill out
the paperwork and submit payment for the Dog Park. There's also a
swimming pool available for a fee of $1.00 for kids and $2.00 for
adults. This is a beautiful setting for our picnic and the park has
some nice amenities (short hiking trails, bathrooms and a
playground) in addition to the Dog Park and swimming pool--something
for everyone!
If you'd like to help organize the picnic, please email me at
shibapicnic@myway.com. Everyone is welcome to participate in the
planning no matter how small of a contribution you can make. Maybe
you don't want to organize the games for the dogs, but, perhaps, you
can make contact with one company or one person to either provide a
donation to the picnic or a service (such as photography) to the
picnic.
I'm looking forward to this event and I hope you are as well. We'll
do our best to provide some fun activities for you, your family and,
of course, those Curly Tails--the Shibas!
