Soup night for Story Dogs

Robin Archer prepares to have his soup from the doggy bowl. Tonight we were served soup and roll (served in a doggy bowl with a bone shaped bread roll), with the difference in the cost between that and our normal meal going towards funds for the Story Dogs project. Story Dogs are used to help children develop reading skills, a very valuable program that is growing throughout the Redlands schools. Anna Bray spoke about the program for the information of those who had not been present earlier this year when one of the dogs visited us. Club Assembly followed - Directors will report back shortly to the members.

Check the Photo Gallery for more photos from tonight.
