NEOESR 26th Annual Picnic

August 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Old English Sheepdogs playing in the field

New England Old English Sheepdog Rescue is planning our 26th Annual picnic for August 28, 2021

We are looking forward to seeing the sheepdogs racing around the “off-leash” area and playing together.  If you can, please join us to celebrate the “dog days of August” at our picnic on the 28th.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 threat, we will be instituting certain temporary changes and restrictions:

  • The Friday evening Red Roof Inn party will not be held this year, but G/A will attend the main event.
  • Boxed lunches only will be served with an RSVP.
  • No shared food will be allowed. This is for safety sake.

In order to insure the highest safety measures we will taking further steps:

  • Sanitizers will be available along with sanitizer stations.
  • There will be an auction and merchandise sales, but things will be covered with plastic, and requests made not to handle unless purchasing.

Location: 20 Tobacco Street, Lebanon, CT  06249

Time: 11:00am to 3:00pm

Sign Up: If you plan to attend, please let us know at picnic@neoesr.org or fill out the form below. It’s ok if you show up without signing up or sign up and do not come. We are just looking for a rough head count.

Cost: Since the picnic is being catered by the Log Cabin Restaurant, we are requesting a donation of $15 per adult, $10 per child  to help cover costs.

Food: Those who sign up will get a boxed lunch.  Non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. There is a restaurant next door to the picnic site where you may purchase grinders or pizza or even sit down for lunch.

Activities: This year’s picnic site has a large fenced play area with plenty of room for dogs and their people to run and play as well as an on-leash area. We will have two tents so that everyone can socially distance. There is a pond for swimming for dogs and their people. The Parade of Rescues will recognize OES rescues from the last year.  We also plan to have a silent auction.

Volunteers: We need volunteers to help with set up, parking, cooking, selling raffle tickets, clean up, etc., and a volunteer to babysit for dogs during the dinner after the picnic. If you would like to volunteer, please contact picnic@neoesr.org

Directions: For directions, contact picnic@neoesr.org or see map below.
