Growth for the Group

Friends of Winnebago County Dog Parks is growing and changing.  We would like to thank Mike Linder for stepping in when Michelle Kennedy needed to go out west. Mike jumped into this role with little hesitation, as keeping things going was something he felt needed to be done.  After 2 years, Mike has decided to step down but not away.  Mike will still be involved with the group.  If you see him please stop and thank him for the past 2 years!

Katie is wanting to grow the group beyond the board creating committees to focus on various areas of need.   More hands less work for an individual.   Michelle Kennedy has been appointed President.  Katie is the feet on the ground and will be taking over duties for Michelle over time.  When you see Katie please welcome her!
