This Saturday the Friends of Elting Memorial Library invite you to join them for the Annual "Walkin' the Dog" fundraiser that benefits both Elting Library and Paws of Ulster Dog Park. It is billed as a Walk-a-thon for dogs and the people who love them with a trail that leads through Huguenot Street and the Rail Trail in the Village of New Paltz.

You and all your canine companions are invited to walk and enjoy as you help raise money for Elting Memorial Library and Paws of Ulster Dog Park. The walk is easy only 1.3 miles. There is a $15 entry fee but if you raise $35 or more for your pup, they will waive the entry fee.

Step-off is the Gilded Otter Parking lot at 8:30a. You can pre-register online at the Elting Memorial Library website or click the link below. The walk is held rain or shine. And there are prizes for the pups who raise the most money.
