  • March events - NE Fla and SE GA

    March 5th - Mardi Gras Parade, Saturday in St Mary's, GA
    The Jax Dane Meetup group plans to participate, if others would like to march with us, they should plan on prepping a costume with the theme : PUTTIN ON THE RITZ. I have a large cardboard box that we are transforming into a Ritz box and will literally be putting on the Ritz (box). Anyone is welcome to just spectate and hang out at end of the parade, there is music and food vendors. More info about the location can be found at http://www.stmaryswelcome.com/ and the Jax Meetup Group can be found at http://greatdane.meetup.com/29

    March 12th - Adventure Landing Dog Lover's Day, Jacksonville Beach, FL
    Adventure Landing is hosting its Annual Dog Loverís Day on Saturday, March 12, 2011. This fun-filled, all-day long, free outdoor event will entertain several thousand First Coast families at Adventure Landing, create awareness of the ongoing problem of the overpopulation of pets, and hopefully provide many homeless pets a permanent home through our Dog Adoption Fair.

    We will be attending in an educational capacity for our All Breed Club and provide info/resources on the Great Dane and others active in breed rescue within our club and area.

    March 26th - 2nd Annual Mutts On A Mission Dogwalk for Cancer, Orange Park, FL Town Hall
    9am - one mile walk begins (there is an entry fee to walk, but free to walk around and visit vendors). We will be participating in an educational capacity for our All Breed club. More info on the event should be directed to Lisa Martin - muttsonamission@bellsouth.net

        next stop - Yappy Hour St Patty Day Paw-ty Sounds like plenty of danes will be there - the Jax Dane Meetup also added a Facebook group to make it even easier to keep up with upcoming events. Quick search should pull it up for any interested.

                  I'll pass the event on, especially since we do have meetup members in SE Ga When I mentioned the event cancellation and that we wouldn't be spending the 4th wkkd in a row doing a doggy event, my husband did his version of the happy dance
