Paw Prints on the Canal a success
Paw Prints on the Canal organizers Julia and Tom Glick and Candi Lynn attended the June 20 Northampton Borough Council meeting with a check for $10,340.05 to benefit the borough police department’s K-9 unit.
Paw Prints on the Canal was held June 2 at Canal Street Park, Northampton, and reportedly had between 3,000 and 10,000 people attend. Added to this number was the hundreds of dogs in attendance as well.
Paw Prints is among the Community Days and Uptown Street Fair events as premier outdoor events held annually in the borough.
“Our growth really has shown this year, with being the largest event ever over the past 11 years, and with over 155 vendors who attended to support our cause,” Julia Glick said.
“Not a lot of businesses can pull this off,” Tom Glick added.
“We really outdid it,” Lynn said.
In addition to the pop-up vendor tents, the event also included a sharp-dressed pet contest. K-9 Vito stole the show with demonstrations on how to take down a suspect with Officer Michael Buchanan at his side.
Stanglein Veterinary Clinic doctors and staff provided rabies shots and microchipping for the pets. Interest was shown for pet adoptions and rescues as well.
Council members rained down accolades on the Glicks and Lynn, along with a resounding ovation, for their work supporting the police K-9 program for more than a decade.
