Once again we’ll have a hearty lasagna dinner with meat and vegetarian options, caesar salad, and breadsticks along with a variety of desserts.  Kitty Hilk will have her popular Gray Gables Farm products including her famous dog treats, jams, and bath products for sale,  If you’d like to order anything in advance, please contact Kitty at   New this year is MWCR member Yogi Tadisch of Spirit Graphics whio will have a variety of MWCR merchandise for sale including MWCR tee-shirts, caps, mugs etc.  Check out the beautiful work he and Joan do with tiles.  Both Kitty and Yogi generously donate the proceeds from their sales to MWCR.   And, of course, we’ll have our large silent auction to raise funds for the care of MWCR’s foster collies as well as a FREE table with items for people to drop off and take..
