A gathering of the greys …

They’re fun, they’re friendly, and they’re fast. They make great pets and are ever so grateful when freed from a kennel to cuddle up with an adoptive family. Ask any greyhound owner and they’ll bend your ear for an hour, extolling the virtues of these graceful and loving animals. Or, better yet, meet a whole lot of them on Sunday, August 21, at the Ag Fair, in a tent in front of the horse arena. If you own a grey, bring it. If you don’t, check them out. Folks from Adopt A Greyhound, Inc. in Falmouth will be on hand to answer questions about the dogs and adoption. Be prepared to fall in love: greyhounds can be addicting. For more info, call 508-693-4155.

… and canine therapists

Right next door to the greyhounds, Therapy Dogs of Massachusetts will show off some of their recent graduates – greys, labs, and Newfies. Get information about classes, schedule a visit with a therapy dog, or just congratulate the new PhD’s (Pretty Helpful Doggies).

Volunteers needed

Can you shingle? If so, the Vanderhoop Homestead at the Gay Head cliffs needs you. On Saturday, August 27, from 8 am to 4 pm, the sidewalls of the old house will be re-shingled and people with some shingling experience are invited to help. The goal is to completely re-shingle the building in one day, so the more volunteers, the better. There will be free parking at the circle and lunch will be provided. For more information, call Mitzi Pratt at 508-645-3035. The rain date will be Sunday, August 28.

Make haste for waste

This Saturday, August 20, marks one of the few opportunities each year to purge harmful household materials from your garage, basement, or utility room. The Edgartown Wastewater Plant on Edgartown–West Tisbury Road will be collecting empty or unused containers of such products as oil-based paint, oven and drain cleaners, and motor oil, for which there is a $1 per gallon charge. The plant is open from 9 am to 3 pm. The last collection day this year is Oct. 15. For more info, call 508-627-4501.
