Happy New Year

January 02, 2012|Susie Hoffman | Around Funkstown

Another 12 months in front of us, full of promise and opportunity. Let’s not waste a moment.

The weather forecast is calling for snow showers in the next few days. Hmm ... I suppose that sounds about right. It’s kind of fun to look ahead and think about spring sports when it’s freezing and nasty out.

Girls softball

The Washington County Girls Softball League will hold registration for the 2012 season.  

Signup will be at Dick’s Sporting Goods on Feb. 4, 5, 18 and 19, from noon to 6 p.m. If you can’t make those days, Extra Innings of Hagerstown has a few more dates for you —  from 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 10 and 24, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 11 and 25.  

For more information, call 301-223-9078.

Pet photo fundraiser

Local dog grooming boutique Bow Wow Station & Spa will hold a two-month-long photography fundraiser for the Humane Society of Washington County.

The event is under way and continues through the month of February.

Costumes and props for your pet to create their own “look” will be provided. Photography sessions will be done between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Reservations are recommended by calling 301-393-5333.

The pet boutique is at 18212 Oak Ridge Drive.

Designer jewelry, crystal collars, tiaras, feather boas, bow ties and more will be available, said Deanna Hendershot, boutique owner.

Participants will receive a complimentary 5-by-7-inch print and all rights to their photo. The sitting fee costs $12 and $2 extra for each additional pet. Family members are welcome to have their photos taken with their pet.
