There is a pond for swimming for dogs and their people and several boats will be available. The Parade of Rescues will recognize OES rescues from the last year.

We will have CGC testing (CGC is now a title rather than just a certificate). If you think you might want to have your dog do CGC testing please email picnic@neoesr.org.
