- Natalie PetSafe 05/31/2013 Hi Parma, thanks for participating in Bark For Your Park. While reviewing your documents, we noticed you uploaded an aerial photo with a caption under land verification. We need more firm communication about the home of your future park should your town win the contest. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck!

- Mary Galinas 05/22/2013 May 22, 2013 Councilwoman Mary Buchholz Galinas 6611 Ridge Road Parma, Ohio 44129 440-842-1532 or 440-885-8091 Dear PetSafe Bark for Your Park Committee, I am pleased to announce my support for Parma’s participation in the 2013 Bark for Your Park contest. I support my constituents’ efforts. If our city wins, I will continue to encourage my colleagues and the mayor to support a city dog park. I will encourage the allocating of the volunteer group, PADPA’s resources to support the city dog park and continue to help the citizens’ organize such efforts once the park is complete. I along with Katie Lieopold, Brandon Yanak, Stefan Stefaniuk, and Barb Forestall have already begun the process of forming a fundamental volunteer activists group committed to establish a Parma Area City Dog Park called PADPA (Parma Area Dog Park Association). Check out the Facebook page: Parma Dog Park and sign our petition. We want to raise all the funds necessary to build the park. Like all recreation a city offers to its residents, a dog park will enhance the quality of life of Parma residents! Parma is the 7th largest city in Ohio and does not have a dog park, like other smaller cities. It is time for a dog park and it can happen, with PetSafe help and yours it can be a reality. Please help us attain this additional asset for the city of Parma! Respectfully, Mary Buchholz Galinas Councilwoman of Parma, Ward One Mgalinas.firstname.lastname@example.org
