Logan Lake Lions walk for guide dogs

The Logan Lake Purina Walk for Dog Guides on Sun., June 1 is a fundraiser for the Lions' dog guide program.

Participants in the Logan Lake Purina® Walk for Dog Guides on Sunday, June 1 can help provide Dog Guides at no cost to those who need it most. This 5 km walk takes place at Maggs Park and begins at 11 a.m. There is no registration fee and all of funds raised go towards providing Dog Guides.
