Two thousand copies of the Plymouth Review's 28-page Walldogs Keepsake publication have been donated for committee’s use. Subscribers receive their complimentary copy in Thursday's mail from the Review.

At the Walldogs event, the Plymouth Woman’s Club will be offering people the opportunity to take their photo with the above cutout by Jim Hawley as a souvenir of this historic event. All monies raised will be used to purchase AED/CPR training equipment for Plymouth Ambulance and the community.

The fee for the photo is on a donation basis.

The woman’s club will also be selling homemade dog biscuits. Proceeds from this sale will be split 50/50 with Gentle Hands Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation in Cascade and the woman’s club. The woman’s club will use the monies to support more community projects. Watch for caramel corn sellers as well.

The club will be in the parking lot east of the library entrance in the children's area.
