Friends of the Fairgrounds: Rocky and Dewitt

Meet Rocky and his owner, Dewitt. Rocky brought his owner in the office a few weeks ago to donate money for the doggy bags found at the Fairgrounds and to thank us for letting him walk at the Fairgrounds. Dewitt says that he and Patricia (not pictured) have been walking with Rocky at the Fairgrounds for years because of its park-like setting and because it makes Rocky happy! Glad to see you out here, Patricia, Dewitt and Rocky; and, thank you, Rocky, for the donation! 🙂

Friends of the Fairgrounds: Kate, Nicole and Cruz

Meet Kate, Nicole and Cruz. These three recently returned to walking at the Fairgrounds after Nicole gave birth (love seeing the five-week-old baby out here). Together they walk 2-3 times per week, and love the Fairgrounds because “it gets Cruz out to ride, they love to chat and catch up, and it’s beautiful.” Why does Cruz like the Fairgrounds? “Because I can ride super fast out here!” Have fun, ladies; and keep going super fast, Cruz!”

Meet Johanna and Merlin, who walk the Fairgrounds every day, rain or shine! “We love it out here because we feel safe and it’s beautiful. Plus, it’s good exercise.”  They walk six times around the grounds, and Johanna burns about 500 calories a day from walking. Keep up the good work, Johanna; and thank you both for being friends of the Fairgrounds!
