Update Anne Jackson Memorial Event 2nd Saturday of September 2014

This year will be a slightly different twist, 
I want to take this opportunity 
to thank all the Volunteers
that have been involved with 
the Anne Jackson Memorial 
5K/10K Run/Walk 
in Deputy Anne Jackson's memory 
through out these last 5 years.  
A special Thank you to Christy Nelson, 
Herb Oberg and Terry Sentinela 
who have been a strong backbone 
for this portion of  the Run event.  
But this year The Humane Society of Skagit Valley 
regrets to share that we will not be doing the Run portion
 of this wonderful event due to some 
unforeseen circumstances.  We hope to see this event return. 
Till then Please look out for the 2nd Saturday of September, 
it's the 13th of September where we will be hosting the 
Anne Jackson Memorial Dog-Gone-Walk-A-Thon! 
see our recent post for details and for a pledge form email me
 at and I will get that too you!
