We would like to thank all of our adopters, volunteers and friends for making Greyhounds in Gettysburg a real success; our best event ever!! Although we have been vending for years at GIG, this year was by far the best. The event was sponsored by Nittany Greyhounds; this was the first year that they were in charge of the event after it had been run for years by the hard working folks at Triangle Greyhounds. This year the event took place mostly indoors at the Expo Center near Gettysburg. It was a big change from the previous location near the outlet mall. The vendors were all set up indoors while lots of activities took place around the center, indoors and out.
We enjoyed meeting our adopters and hounds. It’s always wonderful seeing the happy faces of adopters and greyhounds. Volunteers from our group took charge of the dog sitting tent all day Saturday. That was a lot of fun, according to the volunteers who got to spend time with so many wonderful dogs. Also, our group won the costume contest for having the most entries – AND, two of our adopted hounds won first and second place!
One of the reasons we vend at this event is because it brings in much needed funds to help us accomplish our mission. Thanks to all of the great and unusual items we brought to sell, we had the best year selling!
We so appreciate all of the adopters who stopped by to say hello, all of the attendees who stopped by our vending area and bought items and of course to our wonderful volunteers who all helped make this such a success.
Thanks to the many volunteers at Nittany Greyhounds for all the very hard work they did for so long to make this event fun and enjoyable for all of us.
