SOMERS, N. Y. Jessica and Michael Frey of Somers had the winning ticket in the Somers Dog Park iPad Raffle. Tickets were sold at the Independence Day Celebration and at the Somers Community Center opening Aug. 25. The drawing was Aug. 26.
The iPad prize was donated by a Canine Companions member appropriately named Jackie Bassett. She is among the group of dog lovers dedicated to building a fenced-in area where dogs can run free while their owners chat or simply admire their pets on a tract of land on Route 100.
Although the goal of $20,000 was reached a few months ago , fundraising has had to continue because the price of labor has increased since the initial construction costs were estimated.
It is not too late to make a personal contribution. Send donations to Town of Somers, PO Box 46, Somers, NY 10589 and write dog park in the memo.
