Bring your pet to TriCon’s Blessing of the Animals

September 12, 2023

If it barks, meows, baas or even slithers, it’s welcome at the Blessing of the Animals.

TriCon Church will host the annual Blessing of the Animals, at 4 p.m. Sunday, September 17, on the  lawn at 54 Walden St.

The event is open to all — with or without an accompanying animal. Bring your furry friends, your feathered flock, your fleecy, your scaly, and your stuffed (animals)!

“Last year (the first year that we transitioned to a town-wide event) we had over 100 attendees! ” said Sandy Freund, who is chairing the annual event.

This is a town-wide event. There will be a short outdoor service, music, and games and face tattoos for young and old alike. Animal crackers for snacking for the humans, and homemade doggie biscuits for four-legged friends.
