Dear Mayor and City Council:

We would like to invite you to participate in our Fifth Annual Ramble 'Round the Reservoir, Sunday, June 1, 2003, from 10:00-2:00 p.m. It takes place at Contra Loma Regional Park in Antioch. The purpose of this event is community education regarding animal welfare/ rescue work and to raise funds to support our programs.

Organizing efforts are still underway, but we are pleased to have confirmed that the following groups will participate with information tables: A-1 Dog Trainer Dawn Spoolman (will give dog training demonstrations) and Lori Lee (trainer for Brentwood Parks and Recreation will have dog agility demonstrations).

Attendees register beginning at 10:00 a.m. and walk 2.5 miles around the reservoir. We encourage people to bring a lunch to enjoy during the demonstrations from noon to 2:00 p.m. We request a donation of $20 per person ($15 for pre-registration and children under 14 are free) to help with our spay/neuter programs and other veterinary expenses, which constitute the majority of our program expenses. This donation is voluntary, as the event is open to the public and is held in the park. The park charges a $4 vehicle entry fee and $1 per dog fee.

The City of Antioch and EBRPD have co-sponsored this event for the past four years. We would like to come before the Brentwood City Council to request that you co-sponsor the event, as you did last year. We do not request any funds, but we appreciate the exposure you may give us as a result of your support.

Sincerely,

Karen Kops, President and Ramble Chair
