Come to the Dash in Forest Grove!

Bring the family and furry friends out to Lincoln Park (by the skate park) in Forest Grove August 3, 9:30-3pm, for a fun-filled day celebrating everything canine!  The 1st annual Paws in the Grove begins with a 1- or 2-mile fun run/walk followed by festivities including live music, food, raffles, contests and vendors specializing in canine products and services.  Also on tap are agility demos by Hillsboro K9 and Deaf Dogs of Oregon, plus an open course for your dog to give it a go!

Registration for the walk/run is $15, and includes a pet goodie bag and custom doggie bandana.  All proceeds benefit the Forest Grove Community & Senior Center, a nonprofit providing access to essential services, and opportunities for social and educational enrichment.

Pay by phone OR in person at the Forest Grove Community & Senior Center, or online at
