June Events
May has come & gone and now June is already upon us!  Here's a run down of all the different events CGA has planned this month.  There's a few different events this month that you won't want to miss.

First up on Saturday, June 6th from 1 pm to 3 pm is our Clinton Meet & Greet.  If you are down that end of the state it's a fun time.  Also on that same day, for our northern CT residents, we'll be participating in the 8th Annual Puppy Pride Fun Day, sponsored by the Enfield Dog Park.  There will be contests, vendors, a 50/50 raffle and more.  Get all the details by clicking here.

Then on Sunday, June 7th, it's our monthly Hound Hike at the Farmington Canal trail in Hamden.  We'll be meeting up in the parking lot across the street at 4 pm, in front of Ashley's Ice Cream.  Click here for a map.

Next up on Saturday,  June 13th from 11 am to 3 pm is the Greyhound Adoption Expo & Puppy Farm Tour, in Pompfret, CT.  This is a really fun day of socializing with other greyhound owners from all over New England & beyond.  There will be vendors, food, games, auctions and of course PUPPIES!!  If you've never seen a greyhound puppy, well you just need to go then.  There will also be a special auction for naming rights to a puppy.  This event is not run by CGA, so be sure to check out the website for the picnic by clicking here!

Saturday, June 20th is another big day for CGA.  We have three Meet & Greets, one in Avon from 10 am to Noon, one in Manchester from 11 am to 1 pm and one in Norwalk from 1 pm to 3 pm.  Then in the evening we have our annual Wine Tasting!   Once again we'll be at the Arrigoni Winery, 1287 Portland Colbalt Road, Portland, CT from 6:30 to 9:00 pm.  There will be lots of fun, finger food, teacup auction, 50/50 raffle and of course lots of great local wines to taste.   Tickets are only $25 in advance and $30 at the door.  It includes 6 different wine tastings, food and a souvenir wine glass to take home.   On top of that CGA gets a portion of every bottle sold that night!  It's sure to be a greyt time so click here to get your tickets!!

Finally, if you aren't too hung over from the wine tasting, we have two more Meet & Greets on Sunday, June 21st.  The first is in Newington, from 11 am to 1 pm, and the second will be in West Hartford from Noon until 2pm.  Get all the details on these events and more by checking our calendar!

Phew!  That's a lot of events this month!  No wonder the calendar is zipping by and the year is almost half over already!  Hope to see you and your pups at an event soon!!
