Three Lakes residents are inviting pet lovers to a fundraiser to help build a community dog park.
Lionel Kliss is on the Three Lakes Dog Park committee. He says the "Pause For A Cause" event is set for August 17 at the Burnside Park Pavilion.
Kliss says they have the permits in place to open the park next year at the end of Epler Court across from the Three Lakes Fire Department.
He says the funds being raised will help erect a fence...
"..Our goal is to have the park up and running by June 1, 2020. That means we're prepping the whole park right now. I don't believe we'll be putting the fence up this year. I imagine were putting the fence up next spring..."
Kliss says there will be an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at 7:30 a.m.followed by a walk to the new park..
"..We're going to have a dog walk from Burnside Park to the future dog park site and back. We're going to have Kim Maney and her dog Reba, a blood hound. She's going to show us how the dog is trained to track for humans or people that are lost in the woods, things of that nature..."
A potluck lunch will follow the walk. They will also have an amateur dog show. Other fundraiser games will be offered.
Kliss says you don't have to have a dog to attend. More information is available by contacting Kliss at firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-891-4673.
