If you attended our May 9th Membership Meeting, you met Melissa and her service dog acquired through K9s for Warriors.  Melissa will be participating in an Adventure Race in Virginia to raise money for K9s for Warriors.  Her goal is $500. Please show her our POTC generous spirit and help her reach her goal — here is her page: https://www.classy.org/fundraiser/1403395
