Suzanne Bond, Systems Principle in Procurement Operations, has been the organizer for the Paws-in-the-Park Annual September Event that has been held at Stephens Lake Park for the past six years. Until now, Suzanne has typically spent five months out of the year organizing the event. She works with sponsors, vendors and volunteer organizations to make the all-day festival a fun, educational and rewarding event for animal lovers of all kinds.
The entire event is free to the public (except for the 5K run) and includes games, trophies, an MC and a variety of booths. Thanks to Suzanne’s amazing efforts, the event has grown so large and successful that this year she was able to hand over the managing “leash” to a full committee. While Suzanne will still be involved in the event that she has worked so hard to develop, she now has earned the right to relax and just enjoy her favorite part, managing the 5K run.
The next Paws in the Park event will be held on September 29th, 2012 at Stephens Lake Park. If you would like more information about this event, go to http://offtrackevents.com/pawsinthepark.php .
