September Events
September is here, and that not only means the kids are back in school, but it also means it's time for the annual CGA Reunion Picnic!  This years marks 10 years that CGA has been placing hounds into loving homes!!  Ten years!  That's a lot of greys and a lot of work.  We'd like to say a big THANK YOU to all our volunteers throughout the years.  Without volunteers, be they foster homes, folks who run Meet & Greets, or board members, CGA would not exist, so thank you!

Join us for a big birthday celebration on Sunday, September 13th from Noon to 4 pm.  Once again will be at Camp Sloper (1000 East Street, Southington).  There will be food, vendors, greyhound games, auctions and more!

We'd love to have you and your hounds join us!  There is no fee, but we ask that you take a moment to register so we can get a head count for food.

Our picnic isn't the only event we have in September.  Starting off the month is the Clinton Meet & Greet on 9/5, from 1 pm to 3 pm.  The next day, 9/6, is our informal Hound Hike on the Canal Trail in Hamden at 4pm.  

The day before the picnic, 9/12, is our Meet & Greet in Avon, from 10 am to Noon.  Of course Sunday 9/13 is the big day!  CGA celebrates 10 years!

Rounding out the month the following weekend, we have three Meet & Greets for you.  The first is in Manchester on 9/19 from 11 am to 1 pm.  On 9/20 we'll be in Newington from 11 am to 1 pm and then in West Hartford from Noon to 2 pm.  Read more about these and all our events on our Events Page.

October starts off with a bang too!  October 3rd is our big Beerfest event!  This hooman only event is a really good time.  Check out all the details for the Beerfest here!
