Pet Parade is NEXT Week; ‘Bounce for a Cure’ Today

by LonSeidman

A sidebar in today’s Republican- American gave the wrong date for the Animal Rescue Foundation’s Pet parade. The article states that the parade is today. A police dispatcher confirmed that the parade will instead be next Sunday at 11 am.

However, “Bounce for a Cure Day”, a fundraiser for the Ameican Cancer Society is being held today from 1 pm until 5 pm at Party Plus, 95 Wolcott Rd. Games, clowns, party bounces and more will be held. A donation of $10 per child is requested. $50 donations earn chances for raffle prizes such as bikes and gift certificates.

If you would like to have a float in the pet parade, contact Fran Culver at (203) 879-0662 or Dog Warden Joe Ouimet at 879-1414 ext. 151. Proceeds go to rebuilding the shelter which burned last year in Plymouth.
