OGGA’s annual Greyhound Gathering is growing ever closer.  Bring along a blanket and/or lawn chair(s) so that you can be comfortable during the festivities at  Louisville Community Park Sunday, September 19th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you have always wanted to get to meet these sleek racing dogs up close come out and join us.  We will also have greyhounds up for adoption.

A concession stand serving grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, a bake good stand with delicious homemade sweet treats that you can enjoy while watching the greyhound events.  Shelbi’s Sweets and Treats will be supplying Frosty Paws for the hounds along with Ice Cream treats for their human companions.

Crown Collars will be there with their newest line of  “bling” for your hound.  The Barkery will have baked goodies for your hound to enjoy during the event and to take home after.  Local T-shirt vendor Graphic Garb will offer  printed greyhound related-t-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories.  A local glass painting artist, Terry Green, owner of Window Paintings will have a variety of his hand painted designs for purchase.

Photographer, Phillip D.  Roeser, owner of The Studio will be available to take photographs of greyhounds and their families.  He will be offering a variety of packages to choose from so take advantage of this time to get some beautiful photos taken of member of the family.  If you get a photograph you especially adore Terry Green can put it on glass for you.

Oh for the Love of God, quit complaining. The sooner they take the picture, the sooner we'll be out of these stupid crowns"!

New this reunion, the crowning of King & Queen of the Greyhound Gathering.  People will be able to “purchase” a ballot for their greyhound choice for $1 a ballot. All proceeds go to OGGA.  Folks can purchase as many ballots as they want, and the winner will be drawn at random.
