Senior Event: Lunch and Smoky the War Dog

Thursday, November 3, 2022 — 11:30am

From a lucky chance discovery at the bottom of an abandoned fox hole in Papua New Guinea during WWII to becoming a famous entertainer, a decorated war hero, and the world’s first official therapy dog of record; Smoky’s story is nothing short of amazing. This story is one that is inspirational, emotional, and a great tribute to our veterans, including all dogs of war. Smoky’s story is told by professional public speaker and skilled storyteller Adrian Brigham, who was a person friend of Bill Wynne, Smoky’s owner and trainer.

A light lunch from Subway prior to the presentation includes chips and a cookie.
