Scar­ing up funds for dog park

Haunted house raises over $400 with ‘ghouls and drools’

The Southern Gazette - - Editorial - BY COLIN FARRELL

The bullpen at the Kins­men soft­ball field in Marys­town un­der­went a fright­ful trans­for­ma­tion last week­end as the Marys­town dog park com­mit­tee held a haunted house to help raise funds for equip­ment for the park.

“The fundraiser was awe­some,” said or­ga­nizer Lisa Gover. “We raised close to $500. This money will be a great help in build­ing the equip­ment for both the big dog area and the small dog area.”

Gover said the com­mit­tee would like to add some wooden struc­tures to both ar­eas to give the dogs a play area, as well as some dog-friendly trees for shade. The com­mit­tee hopes to have the struc­tures in place by spring.

This is the sec­ond year for the haunted house. Gover held one last year in her garage, rais­ing $350 dol­lars.

“We were get­ting such awe­some feed­back, we de­cided to do it again.”

Gover said the Town of Marys­town aided the com­mit­tee in the fundraiser.

“Rob Warr was a great sup­port and al­lowed us to use the Kins­men bullpen to put it off this year. We hope to con­tinue with ghouls and drools into the fu­ture.”
