You are invited to join us at the Carpinteria Woman’s Club on Wed, April 11,
7 pm For a presentation on the
Year of the (CARP) Dog Park.
Spurred into action by the idea of this year’s Chinese New Year,“Year of the Dog,” a few Carpinteria residents and dog owners decided to approach the City Council to consider off-leash dog areas and dog parks. That few has grown from 30 community members speaking out last month at the Council meeting, to over 200 motivated, dog loving advocates. Learn how this doggedly determined grass roots effort is unleashing a flurry of excitement! J
Leading the presentation is Carpinteria resident, Van Fleisher, who has been spearheading the dog park movement with great support from dozens of others. Van has recently retired from his international management consulting career and has written and published a thriller novel in his newly acquired spare time. He and his Carpinteria singer-songwriter partner, Jackie Morris, and their Golden Doodle, Yogi, divide their time between Carpinteria and southwestern France.
As always, please bring a friend and a dish or bottle to share!
