STOW: The members of the Stow-Munroe Falls Lions Club are preparing for their 7th annual Paw Fest, which will be held Sunday, Sept. 15, 2013 at Bow Wow Beach Dog Park in Stow.
This year's event is dedicated to the many therapy dogs that visit the hospitals, nursing homes and other facilities to bring comfort to the residents.
Paw Fest is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Parking will be available for $1 or a donation of used eyeglasses - one of the many projects the Lions clubs maintains throughout the year. Admission is free.
The event will have rescue groups, vendors, dog-training exercises/exhibits, speakers, dog contests, a 50/50 drawing and a gift raffle throughout the day. Orbit, the mascot of our Akron Aeros is scheduled to appear from 1-2 p.m. as a special treat for the kids.
Proceeds from this Lion club's fundraiser benefits many community projects, Lion's eye care foundations, in addition to aiding those individuals with impaired vision through eye exams, glasses, and assistance dogs.
Vendors and rescue groups who would like to be a part of this fundraiser should contact Marty Dennis at Duhstoy2@aol.com or 330-607-2242.
