A Grand Rainout

We may have been rained out, but we enjoyed meeting the handful of dogs that braved the weather to visit the park yesterday. And we had a chance to take a sneak peek at the fantastic pavers that will soon be installed! Thank you everyone for your continued support.

For more information or to order an engraved paver visit our Memorials/Dedications page!

 

**Note: not all pavers from the first order are shown in the photos above.

Update on Construction

The following message was sent to anyone who has already registered to become a member of the dog park:

“Good Afternoon, Thank you for your continued support and excitement for the LMT Dog Park. We are in the final stretch but as with any construction project there were a few set backs along the way.

We are in the process of ordering and installing the gate scan system, fountain, benches, waste stations, donated bricks and signage.

We will be doing a clean up of the area and hope to have the park open no later than early June. We will send out an email like this one once the park is ready for its first visitor.

Thank you,

Monica Tierney
Parks and Recreation Director”

If you are interested in visiting the dog park once it opens in June please visit our Registration website to become a member!

March Madness Box Results

Thank you to everyone who participated in our March Madness Box Fundraiser!! Here are the results from Jeff Benedetto:

Here is the final breakdown of winners, and I use that term loosely.

Matt Erb – $110
Kathleen McFadden – $50
Gary Gladwell – $42.50
Ashleen Timoney – $32.50
Lisa Barone Burney – $30
Lisa Bigony – $25
Mary Laemmer – $22.50
Greg Papazian – $17.50
Brian Hogg – $15
Jon Maratea – $15
Marc Waldman – $12.50
Barry Murphy – $10
Amy Margulies – $10
Ravi Verma $10
John Parsons – $10
Betty Timoney – $10
Shaun Waters – $7.50
Rosie Murphy – $7.50
Sydney Murphy – $5
Michael Brody – $5
Chuck Wilkinson – $5
Marty Young – $5
Nancy Coles – $5
David Foster – $5
Lauren Kleissas – $5
Francine Allan – $5
Jacquelyn Keegan – $5
Ciaran Murphy – $2.50
Lynn Giacobbi-Spellman – $2.50
Brendan McClanahan – $2.50
Mike Tonrey – $2.50
Wayne Bilardo – $2.50
Jason Simon – $2.50
Liam Timoney – $2.50

That’s $500 paid out in all. And 34 winners out of 44 (77.3%) people that contributed money (some had multiple entries). Which begs the question, how did anyone NOT win money in this box pool? I call those fortunate souls having “Benedetto” luck.

Oh, and of the 100 boxes in the pool, 48 of the numbers hit. Which basically means for next year, when we will most certainly have twice the number of players (meaning a full 100 entries), there is a 50% chance of winning some money.
