On April 18, 2009, Barnesville–Abundant sunshine and warm temperatures greeted an enthusiastic crowd of dog-lovers and their four-legged friends at the Dolly Goodpuppy Society Spring Fling Fun Dog Show, held on the Barnesville Civic Center grounds. Local Buckeye Band member, Jimmy Green, announced the events as judges Hayward and Karen Cox and county commissioner Nancy Thrash awarded trophies and ribbons to competition winners. Area boy scouts assisted with the sale of hot dogs, drinks, and homemade sweets. The show is one of the main fundraising events of the Dolly Goodpuppy Society, whose primary goal is to provide the KIND News publication to all K-6 schoolchildren in Lamar County. DGS would like to thank our announcer, judges, helpers, as well as our generous sponsors, who donated financial contributions and door prizes to help make the event a great success.
