Petsafe is holding a competition for a $100,000 dog park grant, with two $25,000 runner up prizes. One of the runner up prizes goes to the city with the highest votes per population percentage so even a small town has a chance at this!
You can vote twice per day,
Once on their Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/PetSafeBrand/app_321086731284099
and Once on their website http://www.petsafe.net/barkforyourpark/city/23467/essex-vt/ (which is undergoing some maintinence at the time of this letter)
I hope you can take 2 minutes out of your day, everyday to vote. The runner up prizes would more than cover what we need to get building. If we win, we could see the park open as early as this fall!
