Paw Patrol

Wed, Sep 17-Oct 22, 5:30-6:30pm,
All ages. Let’s create new friends, both furry and human, as we take a one-hour power walk around the lake or through the park trails. Improve overall fitness levels for both dogs and owners as we walk at a pace that’s not quite a run, but fast enough to leave you both invigorated! Complimentary water will be provided for both dogs and their people. Trail maps and fitness tips will be shared. Wear comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear. Dogs must be leashed and up-to-date on vaccinations. Information: 652-3407.

Monster Mash
Fri, Oct 31, 6-9pm
Dorey will be transformed into a mad science lab to celebrate the hair-raising fun of fall with Frankenstein and Igor at this year’s Monster Mash event! Watch science come to life with performances by Mad Science of Central VA and feel your way through the creepy crafty “Sensational Laboratory.” Outside, take a trip to the pond for the newly designed “Haunted Trail” and sit around the fire to hear spooky stories and drink cider.
