created the life-size paper mache model of "Donna", a
puppy he raised, and she sported a guide dog harness and sat patiently
next to George, her life-size blind partner created by Michael's
brother, Brian. Pathfinders members all contributed labor and materials
to complete the booth. From the life-like fire created by Kris
and his mom, Coleen, to the beautifully designed posters contributed
by Phillip and his mom, Yvonne, the booth was a labor of love.
Emma helped with construction and was also official puppy-sitter,
while mom, Margaret, was always ready with a helping hand.
The booth was completed while members were busy coming and going
with other fair activities. Laura and Michael showed sheep and
Emma showed her rabbit. Kris was in the show ring with his cattle
while his mom took over with the puppy. Yes, raising a guide dog
puppy is a busy project done by busy people! Congratulations to
all the members who helped make the fair a success! We also came
home with $200 in prize money! A big thanks to all the supportive
parents and members who helped in the background but I may have
neglected to mention.
