Good reason to stroll?

The August 2010 Gallery Stroll doubled as an avenue for collecting much-needed items for the Good Shepherd Humane Society. There were 70 cans of food and 56 pounds of dry food collected, plus seven bags of treats, toys, flea powder, collars, shampoo and a leash.

Iris at the Basin Park raised $164 from the raffle of prints from Zeek Taylor and Karrie Evenson specifically for this event.

Stroll for ECHO
