Woofstock is an event in which various people bring their dogs to the park. It benefited the Greyhound Pets of America. There were crafts to buy, music, food, games, and a dancing dog show. The various crafts sold included dog beds, collars, blankets, and so much more. They also sold a variety of books.
When I arrived at the event as part of my community service, my first duty was to ensure that the arriving guests received one of the many beautifully colored scarves for their dogs. At the end of the event, I and the other students assisted in bringing the remainder of the books for sale to the book seller’s car.
Events such as these expose students to the diversity of the community in an amusing manner. They further help the students to understand proper behavior in the community as well as how to serve the community. The other Brevard Center students volunteering at the event were Matt Graham, Ben Kesselhaut, Brian King, Sam Kirby, Charlie Nielson, Dane Sampath and Zach Lichterman, our photographer.
