Letter: Sugar Grove Farmers Market ‘Dog Days of Summer’ event Aug. 15

By on August 14, 2009

This Saturday, Aug. 15, the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce Farmers Market is hosting Dog Days of Summer, a special event sponsored by Millie’s Pet Sitting & More, LLC, that is dedicated to Man’s Best Friend.

This will be a very special market with a photo contest for the peppiest dog, the laziest dog, the best-dressed dog, and the cutest puppy picture, as well as a stupid pet trick contest. The stupid pet trick contest will be held at 10 a.m.

Owners may sign up for the contests by completing the Entry Form available on the Sugar Grove Chamber of Commerce & Industry web site at www.sugargrovechamber.org or at the information tent at Farmers Market before 9:45 a.m. on Saturday morning.

Photo entries will be displayed at the information tent. Visitors to the market will be encouraged to vote for their favorite photos as they enter the Market, so it’s a good idea for entrants in the photo contest to submit their entries beforehand, or first thing Saturday morning!

In addition to the contests, several specialty vendors and organizations involved with dogs will be present at Dog Days. They include Midwest Greyhound Adoption, Sugar Grove Animal Hospital, Bil Jac Dog Food, Barkaholics, Kilogi Dog Treats, and more.

Any dog-related business or organization interested in participating should contact Pat Graceffa at (630) 466-1014 as soon as possible.

The Sugar Grove Farmers Market is held in the parking lot of the Sugar Grove Municipal Building, Rt. 30 and Municipal Drive every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon through September.
