White Park still going to the dogs…in September
With a weekend weather forecast predicting thunderstorms and
significant cold rain, the Concord Public Safety Foundation’s Board of
Directors elected to move the 2nd Annual Bark in the Park:
Canines for K-9 to a new September date. The decision was difficult to reach, but
safety of canine and human attendees was paramount. The event will remain at Concord’s White
Park, with the fall date to be announced soon.
Community members will still have an opportunity to meet K-9 working dog Fanto this spring, ask questions of Sgt. Nick Hodgen, Fanto’s handler from the Hillsboro Police Department, and see local notables don the bite suit for Fanto’s demonstrations. An indoor event is being planned for May in Concord.
The Concord Public Safety Foundation is grateful for the unwavering support of sponsors, vendors, exhibitors, and past attendees – learn more about plans for K-9 Meet + Greet, 2nd Annual Bark in the Park, and the 3rd Annual Fire Truck Pull on July 19th by visiting facebook.com/ConcordPublicSafety
