In November 2018, we introduced a local, grass roots initiative, "Shelter to Service", to give back to a local veteran. The Erie Humane Society has selected a shelter dog to train to become a service dog, that will be awarded to a local, qualified veteran, to provide comfort and support. At our 2019 concert, we awarded our first service dog to a wonderful and deserving veteran, and we look forward to introducing our THIRD service dog in-training at the concert.
