We will be celebrating 20 years of Peppertree with hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, Chef Joe’s Chicken, assorted picnic salads and birthday cupcakes for dessert!

We will have an obstacle course sponsored by Good Choice Dog Training, and Old Dogs New Tricks will be on hand to conduct an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluation, your dog could leave with a title! E-mail Alissa at for more details.
