Planning Meeting Wednesday, February 24
The Jingle Bell Festival Committee is planning a fall dog show that will benefit everybody’s favorite four-legged friend.
Event organizer Judy Lonergan said funds from the dog show will go towards building a dog park in Medford. Lonergan said the Committee, along with Medford Animal Control Officer Patrick Hogan and veterinarian Dr. Christina MacKenzie, are “the moving force” behind the creation of a Medford dog park.
Longergan said a spot for the park has not been finalized yet but they are considering the corner of Winthrop Street and Mystic Valley Parkway, near the Condon Shell.
“It would be the perfect place because it will not affect a neighborhood and it has parking,” said Lonergan.
Lonergan said Hogan is also looking into other locations, and the Committee is open to suggestions.
Anyone interested in helping plan the fall dog show is invited to attend at meeting on Wednesday, February 24, at 7:15PM at The Community Family, 121 Washington, Medford.
