KDOG’s Youngest Volunteers – Budding Artists!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tracy Doering @ 1:20 pm

 

We are so happy and blessed to have posters made by several youth volunteers to welcome and thank all the Microsoft volunteers who worked so hard at Jasper’s Dog Park at our fall work parties.   HUGE THANKs to artists Danae, Tristan, Michael and Erika, who made several really wonderful thank you posters in expression of gratitude to the Microsoft volunteers.   MANY THANKS also to Ray, our wee volunteer, his teacher Ms. Traci, and his Explorers classmates at Living Montessori for many beautiful “doggies” they made and painted for us – they are ADORABLE!   All the beautiful posters and painted doggies so touched our hearts!

Last, but not least, we extend sincere thanks to Wendy Koob and Jean Guth, awesome talent scouts!

Thank You Fred Meyer, Metropolitan Market, QFC and Starbucks for Generous Food and Beverage Donations!

Windows Azure Marketing Day of Caring — What a Wonderful Group of Volunteers!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tracy Doering @ 8:37 pm

On Friday Oct 19, our friends from the Windows Azure Marketing (WAM) team came out for a day of volunteer work at Jasper’s Dog Park. What an amazingly kind, fun and hardworking team! These folks could have been doing any number of things on a Friday that was forecast for dismal weather, yet they came out in large number and tackled our project with a strong work ethic and great enthusiasm. Special thanks go to Stephanie Lewis and Rebecca Smith, who coordinated the event for WAM.  The WAM team did a tremendous amount of work around our new pathway/entry – cutting back blackberry vines, pulling out blackberry roots and planting native plants (close to 400) within the wetland mitigation area along the park perimeter. We are so grateful for the support from all of our Microsoft volunteers – THANK YOU!

I’d also like to recognize the dedicated KDOG volunteers who helped supervise Friday’s project and/or worked at the park on Saturday to continue pushing back blackberry vines and finish planting: Haris Majeed, Amy Introligator, Ann McLean, Brad Hixenbaugh, Chuck Blagg, Debbie and Noel Wiltbank, Eloise DuBois, and Bob Rodgers.  Big thanks as well to Jean Guth, who has been overseeing the pathway project while she winds down her duties as KDOG’s past President.  Lastly, welcome to our newest volunteer, Delanie Hahn, who worked hard with us at the park on Saturday and is also doing an ambitious school research project for KDOG related to park improvements!

All the work done by these wonderful volunteers will enable us to open a new and improved park entry this fall — a huge accomplishment and important milestone!
