Introducing Hank, a one and half year old Standard Poodle. When Hank isn't at the dog park or running along the Coal Creek Trail you will find him on Main Street at Louie's Pet Supply. Hank is the official store greeter and will be more than happy to show you all of his favorite treats.

Historic Moments
This month in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Commission, we are featuring:
