Tomorrow, May 21 the Leadville/Lake County Fire Rescue will be commemorating 131 years of service to the local community. To celebrate, the Firefighters welcome the community to stop by for some cake and refreshment from 5 – 8 p.m.

Your Dog: A Round of Golf or Good Long Chat
High country folks take their pets seriously, especially dogs. So this report is a shout out to your four-legged, furry friends!
Dog Day Afternoon at Mt Massive Golf Course
The Dog Day Afternoon Charity Event is a 9 hole golf tournament to be held tomorrow May 19 at Noon. The tournament will consist of 2 person teams and dogs will be allowed to tag along on the golf course. All of the proceeds generated during this event will go straight to the Lake County Animal Shelter.
Created by Leadville local and golf enthusiast Katy Robison, the mission behind the event is to bring awareness about the importance of pet adoption and to show support for your local animal shelters whether it be through monetary donations, dropping off food and supplies or volunteering your time to walk the dogs and play with the cats.
So grab your clubs and favorite four-legged friend and head on over to The Dog Day Afternoon Charity Event which starts at noon on Sunday, May 19 at Mt. Massive Golf Course. If you have any other questions or need more information, call Katy at (970) 389-3305.
Learn How to Communicate with Your Pet
If golf’s not your style, there’s another opportunity to hang out with your pet tomorrow at the Animal Communication Class. Well-known Denver area clairvoyant and medium Megan Riley will return to Leadville to teach an animal communication class at the Leadville Animal Shelter.
The class will focus on beginning techniques of how to communicate telepathically, being present in the moment and understanding and feeling the energy in all things. “Sometimes it is easier to start with an animal you don’t know, because our feelings for our own pet can get in the way of us being open to what they are trying to say,” explains Riley.
The cost is $35 per person, kids under 15 are free. Bring your own pet or spend time with one from the shelter. The original class on April 15th was snowed out. For more details, to register or to make an appointment for a private reading, please call Cookies With Altitude at 303-720-3683 or email Megan Riley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
