Keystone Pet Enhanced Therapy Services’ (KPETS) third annual Patriotic Pet Expo/Pet Platoon Walk fundraiser will be held Sunday, May 19 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Grater Memorial Park and Eicher Arts Center in Ephrata.
The KPETS fundraising walk will be kicked off at 11:15 a.m. by Lancaster County Commissioner Craig Lehman.
“Our goal,” a KPETS spokeswoman said, “is to raise $10,000 so that KPETS can remain available and free to people of need in our community. We are inviting veterans who have or are serving our country to walk along with us, giving us the opportunity to thank them for their sacrifices and to share our beloved pets. The day will include food, vendors, special guests and raffles.”
“To meet our goal, we invite you to walk with us on our less than 2-mile walk starting along the beautiful Cocalico Creek. Pledge and walk guidelines can be found on the KPETS’ website, www.kpets.org.”
At 3:00 p.m. the Eicher Center will continue the day’s patriotic theme with a music and multi-media program dedicated to all who served in American armed conflicts. Dave Zoccola of Lancaster, who has performed and taught piano music and tuned pianos for 30 years, will play a medley of some of the most popular and enduring American songs. Norman Ressler will accompany him with a PowerPoint presentation of patriotic visual images.
After their performance, refreshments will be available while music of the Korean and Vietnam War eras will be played.
