Lunenburg Dog Party 2018

Saturday, February 10 at 2 PM

Tenderness Gathering place - at a private home - is proud to welcome friends to our 1st Dog Party - and b’ cause it’s winter someone we know might be having a playful Sled Race! 

Grab your furry buddy (or buddies—of all breeds), your friends/family, a mug, maybe even ice skates weather permitting and a sled and join us for an afternoon of friends gathering for friendship and community goodness. 

Oh goodness ❤️🐕🐩🐾❤️

Keep warm by the bonfire with a glass or 3 of hot apple cider and make 12 S’mores. We’re hoping to include story telling from the historical society, but please bring all of yours. In between doggy walks and runs take your sled for a plunge on the hills— and Yes, there will be a “bunny slope” designated for the little ones. 


As evening approaches, step in for live, local music and games for the family. 

Musicians will be announced

We will pass a basket around with 100% of any donations going to the Fitchburg Dog Park and Pat Brody Shelter for Cats! 🐶😻🎉😲
