On Sunday June 28 at 1:30 p.m. in the New London city park, the Dover Museum will host a program on Emergency K-9 Operations, Inc. Search and Rescue presented by Bill and Lois Hall of Clinton, Iowa.

One of their dogs, Hawk, began his training when he was only 10 weeks old, later obtaining Operational Certification in Trailing, Area Search, Evidence Search, Building Search, Disaster First Response, and Human Remains Detection. He was worked with other agencies including US Border Patrol, Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Miami-Dade Police Dept. as well as agencies in four other states involving disasters, drownings suicide, murder, missing children and adults.

These dogs participate in hundreds of educational programs for schools and groups. Hawk is nationally registered as a Therapy Dog and visits the Ronald McDonald House. He works with Alzheimer sufferers to improve memory and reduce anxiety and individuals with other conditions.

Please bring lawn chairs. In case of inclement weather, the program will be held in the museum. There is no charge. Refreshments served.
