Each year in June our club hosts a Pug picnic at Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge, Michigan. We provide brats, hot dogs and burgers and ask folks to bring a dish to pass. We have pug games which may include hot dog dunk, cake walk, best kisser, curliest tail, biggest pug, etc. It's great fun and you get to meet other pug lovers. You might help greet newcomers, cook hot dogs, judge contests, or sell pug related items. You might help set up or clean up at the end.

Sometimes we get a call and need to pick up a pug from a shelter or closing puppy mill. We always need people willing at a moments notice to help out. We keep a list of possible transport folks and you could be that person.
