I would like to take this moment to thank everyone that was a part of the "14th annual HSOV Paws Walk" this year. They are as follows: Carol McKitrick for doing such a great job on the baskets, Jim Baldinger and Emma for his appearance on WTAP-TV great job, Eric Merrow for the sound system, even you were sick as a dog, Louise Holmes for being MC and adding a little humor to the walk. For Lisa Merrow, Carol Lindamood, Rhonda Deem and Julie Adams for working the registration table, I couldn't have done this without your help. For the shelter volunteers for bringing the pooches from the shelter and being responsible for them. For Michelle Gaughan for rounding up the breakfast from McHappy's and Tim Horton's and Ron Becker for the tables from United Rentals. For Marilyn Wagner and the beautiful glass piece she painted for the Most Money Raised.
