Beautiful Joe's "Santa Paws Walk" past the Meaford Longterm Care Centre
     We are looking for 10 - 25 dogs and their people to participate in this walk past their dining-room.
When:   Sat., Dec. 19th      Time: 11:45 a.m.
Where:  Meet at William and Thompson St. -  previously the old Meaford Factory Outlet Mall / now Canadian Pet Connection's parking lot.  We will walk along the sidewalk, with social distancing, from there to Meaford's Long Term Care Centre and do a 'parade' past their dining-room windows.

What to wear?  A big smile - and of course, warm clothes, preferably with a Santa hat.  If your pooches have festive attire, dress them up!  The residents (and staff) will love it!  We are the outdoor 'walk by' entertainment while they enjoy their lunch. 

(Masks recommended even though we are outdoors).  Your smile may not show, but your happy attitude will!

Want to join the walk?  RSVP to   Let us know that you are coming and how many people / dogs will be walking with you.
