At our August monthly club meeting a club member named Eleanor reported on her involvement in the dog training project this spring. She did classes on agility and obedience with her dog, which were once a week. This was her second year in the project, and Eleanor stated that she really enjoyed it.  Afterwards, multiple members recapped on the club outing to the Bay Beach Wildlife Center and the Bay Beach Amusement Park where each member got a few tickets to ride rides.
