Dogs and Bogs Fundraiser

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety is get­ting to­gether with the Mar­ling­ton Bog As­so­ci­a­tion to put on what is sure to be a fas­ci­nat­ing fundraiser. A three kilo­me­tre walk in the Mar­ling­ton Bog will take place on Satur­day, Septem­ber 1st, be­gin­ning at 9:00 am. The walk will be in honor of the late Al­bert El­liot, also known as the “Bog Man”, who spent un­told hours pre­serv­ing the Mar­ling­ton Bog’s uniquely beau­ti­ful eco-sys­tem. Mr. El­liot built trails and board­walks so more peo­ple could ap­pre­ci­ate the bog first­hand.

Those tak­ing part in the walk must go to the bog en­trance off Route 247 on Davis road, in Og­den, (red metal gate) for 9:00 am. Contact the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety for a pledge form so friends and fam­ily can spon­sor your walk and sup­port two very im­por­tant causes at the same time!
