‘Candlelight for Canines’ to Fund Manchester Dog Park
Ye Olde Tavern will be going to the dogs on Tuesday, November 28, when Michael Brandt and his staff will host the first-ever Candlelight for Canines event. This is another of the tavern’s Dine Like an 18th-Century Guest dinners, but this one will be for the benefit of the Manchester Dog Park (MDP). Proceeds from the evening will give a boost to the MDP Board’s efforts to maintain and improve southwestern Vermont’s only off-leash dog park where canines and their human companions can play and socialize. Dinner from the full menu will be offered from 5 to 9 p.m., with all food and beverage profits earmarked for MDP. There will be treats and surprises for diners and dogs, along with MDP T-shirts for sale. The Manchester Dog Park is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and has become an invaluable community resource for Manchester residents and their canine friends, as well as out-of-town visitors. The park, located in the Dana Thompson Rec Center on Route 30/Bonnet Street in Manchester Center, is totally funded by private donations, grants and volunteer-created fundraisers.
