NEOESR 25th Annual Picnic

June 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join us at our 25th Annual Rescue Picnic for food, fun, rescue dogs, laughs and sharing stories of our favorite dogs. You don’t have to have a rescue Old English Sheepdog to attend. All are welcome.  

Location: 20 Tobacco Street, Lebanon, CT  06249

Time: 11:00am to 3:00pm

SPONSORS: Anyone wishing to sponsor the Picnic should contact picnic@neoesr.org or click here for sponsorship details

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 $10 per adult, $5 per child  to help cover costs.

Food: Hamburgers and hot dogs and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. If you would like to bring something, such as a dessert, contact picnic@neoesr.org. 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. 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.

Got questions about how to groom your dog? We plan to have a grooming demonstration.

Are you interested in what is going on with New England Old English Sheepdog Rescue?  We will have a Board meeting. 

LODGING: We recommend the Red Roof Inn in Mystic – New London CT.  To make reservations please call 1-800-733-7663. They are holding a block of 8 rooms at $65 for standard king. When calling say you are with NEOESR.

Staying in Friday night?  Join us at the Wine & Cheese party Friday 5″30 – 8:30pm at the Red Woof Inn in Mystic – hosted by Grannie Annie.
