    Saturday October 8 at 9:00 a.m.
    You are invited to the front lawn at Grace Lutheran Church for our annual Pet Blessing.
    3010 52nd Street, just across from Riley Park.

    Everyone is welcome – last years pets and their humans had a very good and blessed time. If your pet has a hard time in a crowd, or has passed over the rainbow bridge, you are invited to bring a photo, toy, or other belonging that reminds you of them, to be blessed.

    Light refreshments will be served after the blessing.
    Donations of pet food are welcome (but not required). These are being collected for the Pet Project of the Midwest, which works to help keep loved pets in homes and out of shelters.
