If you haven't already heard or participated before, East Palestine is getting ready for "DOG" days Saturday, May 9th, 2009. "DOG" days is a Day of Giving - in which the community rally's together to clean, paint, plant and donate to make EP a more beautiful place to live and be proud of. I have participated for several years and it is a rewarding feeling to know that you are contributing to your community, nature and taking pride in what EP has to offer now and in the future through the efforts of so many that are working hard to improve our town.
Whether you have a couple hours to offer or all day, any time you have to help in the effort will be so greatly appreciated and it will give you a "good feeling" knowing that you participated!
Registration forms can be picked up at the Municipal Building - 144 N. Market St, the Library or at the East Palestine School. Volunteers are asked to report and sign in at the Community Center at the EP park between 8:00 & 9:00 am, if you were not able to pick up a registration form, I am certain you can do so at the sign in on Sat. morning. Lunch will be provided for the volunteers at the Community Center as well.
In addition to the "DOG" day event, the East Palestine Volunteer Firemen will be having a BBQ Chicken dinner to benefit their local dept. This will be held from 4:00 until 7:00 pm at the cost of $8.50 per plate (includes 1/2 chicken, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, roll, drink and dessert.) Sounds like a nice meal and an even better cause!
This is a great opportunity to work together, share laughs, create memories and show our younger generation how much we love our community and how to take care of it for the future! Hope to see you there!
