Dear HGA Members, Adopters, and Facebook Followers –
We will not be holding Prairie Beach/Fall Fest in the fall of 2015.
We hope to be able to reschedule the event, Prairie Beach/Fall Fest, for the Spring of 2016, if time, resources, and schedules permit (due to the reasons discussed below). Please watch for more information early in 2016.
After much discussion by the Board of Directors we have come to the difficult decision to move Prairie Beach/Fall Fest to the Spring for the following reasons:
Cooler weather moving the event to Spring. We have previously
discussed moving the event spring to avoid hot weather, so now is a wonderful time.
Less interference with busy summer schedules of our members.
Bluff’s Run is closing in December of 2015. The Board is in the process of transporting, fostering, making arrangements for housing, vetting, securing additional resources, and foster homes for many retirees due to the track closure.
Please continue to support and promote retired racing greyhound adoption as you have in the past and continue to support HGA in any way possible into the future. This will be a time that will require many volunteers for many different jobs and together we can all do more for our beloved breed.
We look forward to seeing all of you in the Spring of 2016, for what we hope will be a very large gathering for all of our Retired Racing Greyhounds and Their Forever Families.
Thank You for Your Understanding,
Heartland Greyhound Adoption Board of Directors.
