Rocket Recall - Springfield Mon Aug 31st
50 minute, three week course.  Does your dog like to play "catch me if you can" games when it's time to come back in her house? Would you like to be able to take your dog on an off leash hike and know that he will reliably come when called? Has your dog ever slipped through a door or gate and run out into the street, ignoring your frantic attempts to get him to come back? This three week intensive is all about teaching a reliable recall - coming when called, in the face of a variety of distractions. Teaching your dog to reliably come when called not only makes your time with your dog more enjoyable, but it can be a lifesaver if your dog get's loose at any point in time due to a dropped leash or an open door. There must be a four dog minimum in order to hold the class. Classes may be canceled within 24 hours if this minimum is not met. REFUND POLICY If you register for a training class or workshop and need to cancel, a full refund will be offered if the cancellation notice is received no later than 48 hours before the class start date. Registration payments will be nonrefundable with less than a minimum of 48 hours notice.

Smile Run 2015 (Springfield)
September is Suicide Prevention Month. In an effort to help raise awareness we are hosting our first annual Smile Run. This year it is dedicated to Jeff Hill, who passed away November 6, 2014.  His final wishes were that people would SMILE and FORGIVE. You can read more of his story below.   A portion of the proceeds from this run will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, which is dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education , and advocacy.  What: Complete a 5K and/or 10K! Set a goal for what your finishing time will be and dedicate your run/walk to Jeff and anyone else you'd like to dedicate it to. When: Complete your race any time between September 1 and September 30, 2015. *Medals will be shipped out in September 2015.  Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us). Why:  Because we honor Jeff and help in any way we can to prevent suicide and bring a smile to people's faces. Jeff's Story, shared by his friend Kenda. Jeffrey Alan Joseph Hill was born December 24, 1983.  I met him when he was a just a tiny sweet boy, when my family and his family came together as friends.     Jeff was the youngest of three boys.  The ultimate little brother.  He had an unbelievable amount of energy, was mischievous and full of fun.  He had a smile that would light up a room!  The years blur together but as Jeff grew older, his energy did not lessen and his smile did not dim.  He grew into a wonderful man, brother, uncle and friend.  He had a love of knowledge and learning and his desire to absorb information and debate anything and everything exceeded that of anyone I have ever known.  He was constantly planning his next move and no one around him ever doubted that he would do great things with his life.  He had a profound love for Trinidad (the island), where his mother is from, and visited there as often as possible.  He also had abundant love for his family, his many friends, music, finance, economics, politics and the good old Denver Broncos.  His life made an impression on countless people.  He regularly talked about the importance of leading a positive life and tried to spread that attitude to everyone he came into contact with.  Notes to Jeff included kind words and great memories: “Your passion for everything whether it be work, friends, family, or just having a damn good time was so contagious that it drew everyone around you in” “Always smiling, always helping, always willing to lend a hand.  Jeff, this world is a better place because you were in it” “Nothing stopped you from achieving your dreams.  You were a wealth of information and fascinated by learning.  I thought you would never be stopped” Jeff left this place November 6, 2014.  We will never know what caused him to take his life.  What we hope, is that we can learn and grow from what he has taught us.  We also pray that we can somehow help others that may be going through what he went through in the last days, weeks, and months of his life.  Jeff always was and continues to be deeply loved by all of his friends and family.  We hope to live up to his last wishes and reminders: “forgive” and “smile”.    **If you are a paid MEET ME ON MARS participant you should have received an emailwith a discount code to use on all of our virtual races this year to save 25% on each race.

Valley Venture Mentors Monthly Meeting 2015
Startup entrepreneurs often lack a deep network of relationships, severely decreasing their survivability.  Meanwhile, many business executives love to mentor but lack a way of easily and enjoyably finding and helping the right ventures.     A small team of entrepreneurs and business leaders co-founded Valley venture Mentors in 2011 to solve this problem.  The format is simple: put the right people in the same room, give them just enough structure, and then funnel the collisions :).     The program meets monthly so that mentors have a chance to build real relationships and see how the ventures evolve over time.  Mentors give as much, or as little, time to each venture as they feel appropriate with no long-term commitments or expectations.  The program's leadership guides mentors and entrepreneurs that choose to deepen their relationship.   Free beer, wine, and gourmet food is provided to help fuel the evenings' festivities!   Where:  Tower Square, VVM Accelerator Space 1500 Main Street, 1st Floor, Springfield, MA 01115 Parking & Directions   Child Care: VVM provides free child care for people who order "Child Care" tickets.  Please bring whatever entertainment your kids enjoy.  We'll have movies, markers,and paper.  Please order free tickets for each child. Learn More: http://valleyventurementors.org Questions? Email Program Manager Jake Hawkesworth (jake.hawkesworth@valleyventurementors.org). * Please note that folks who RSVP will receive notices of future VVM meetings via email.  If that is not of interest, please let us know and we will remove your name.
