Thanks to Sandy, Liz, Sue, Shelia, Karen, Michael and Chris for their efforts in running the Rummage Sale on Saturday the 17th. We raised $364.70 for the Dog Park. A special thanks to all who donated merchandise for the sale and to those who purchased many, many items. This will allow us to pick up the mower and be able to keep ahead of the thistle.
On Tuesday the 13th we hosted a wine tasting at the “End Zone” in Marysville. Even though the turnout was less than hoped for, but a good time was had by all who attended. Sue, Liz, Shelia, Sandy and Chris set up and ran the tasting. I would like to personally thank Chris, the owner of the End Zone for allowing us to use the patio and to Jeff “da Chef” for his awesome appetizers that were specially paired to our wine selections.
Jeremy and Amy at Grocery outlet came through again with the loan of wine glasses for the event.
Don’t forget, supporting Off the Leash events keeps the park open and running.

Just a quick note, Wine Tasting is BACK!
Thursday April 16, 5 to 8PM at Sopa Thai.
See the calendar entry for more information, and come on out! Sorry for the last-minute announcement!
Saturday around 6pm. Park is 82 degrees with a light breeze… Perfect!
Here we are, having fun at the Dog Park, during the Superbowl! Some of us know what’s really important.
Check out the new tables! These are a great addition to our park.
It is officially official. We have the grant to plant trees in the Dog Park. Re-Leaf is the non-profit partner of Cal-Fire. They look for areas in communities that could use a few trees and in our case approached the YC Parks and Recreation Foundation, who in turn asked us if we were interested in having trees added to the Dog Park. I applied thru the Parks & Rec. Foundation and we now are the proud recipients of 33 trees for the Park.
We had requested some Red Woods and Bald Cypress and Italian Cypress and Chinese Pastiche. What we will get are Deodar Cypress, Chinese Pastiche, Valley Oak, Trident Maple and Crepe Myrtle.
We are shooting for a planting date early in December. If you use the dog park, here is your chance to help make it more beautiful. I will be posting a planting diagram along with pictures of the trees that will be planted. If you are interested in volunteering, call me at 530-329-1997.
We are hoping that the trees will all be 15 gallon size when we get them, so that we will have an idea of what lies ahead when they get larger.

The Mason’s are using our park as a community service project in connection with the “Make a Difference Day.” We hope a lot of people can show up and help out so they all know how much we do love our park and appreciate their help. It all happens Oct 5, beginning at 8:00 AM
We’ve got a couple of projects in mind for them to help with, like repaint the a-frame. But any other suggestions are welcome!
Any more info call Chris Parent, Pres, Off the Leash Dog Park at 530-329-1997
Look at the new fence between the little and big dog areas. Looks great!
