This has nothing to do with fishing or hunting, but I know many of you are dog lovers, as are my wife and I, especially Labrador Retrievers.

As you can tell from my Forum name, I'm an old time square dance caller and my wife is an old time fiddle player.

The 3rd Saturday in May is National and World Fiddle Day and the last 2 years we have held an old time fiddle jam/old time dance/square dance to celebrate the day. We do not charge admission for the event, but ask people to make donations for COPE SERVICE DOGS. In the first 2 years we have been successful beyond our wildest dreams as we have raised a total of $5,300. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the people attending.

We are doing the same again this year and plans are well along. There will be 6 Labrador service dogs there and this year we sought out some corporate donors and we have already raised $2,300., without a music note played or a dance step taken.

So, if you are looking for something to do in the afternoon of May 18th, come out for a afternoon of good old time fiddle music and dancing. If you don't dance, come and listen.

Complete details are in the following material, including how to make a donation if you cannot be there but want to support the cause. Donations of $20.00 or more qualify for a tax receipt.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this

Ralph, I wish I lived closer or were up visiting my buddy as he just around the country corner. I have made a donation online for the cause.

Can you guess which puppies I like best. Sam can't decide which bed she prefers. Hope Sandy likes this one.

Hi Steve

Sandy loves the picture of Sam.

Thank you very much for your generous donation.

With that and other advance donations we are now at a total of $2,629., without a note played or a dance step taken.

Did an interview today with CTV Barrie for the Fiddle Day event and COPE Service Dogs.

No promises but might be able to make it and thats why because I am closeby. I am not sure if Susan and I will be at the trailer yet and what her agenda is but will try Ralph.

Lots of fiddlers, musicians and square dance callers coming.

Normally, on the day, we get about $1,500 in donations at the door.

This year, we already have $2,782. in advance donations.

We could break $4,000 this year.

Come on out for fun afternoon and meet some great dogs.
