When Wilma Spike retired to Ocean Shores about 10 years ago, she never really felt lonely even though she was the only one living in the view Dreamscape condominiums at the very southern tip of the Ocean Shores peninsula.
In a matter of weeks, she had met another new and likewise single woman living in the remote community, Judy Weber, and the two were off nearly every week to experience all there was to their newly adopted home.
Wilma continues to leave her mark, celebrating the fifth year she has been the lead organizer and inspiration behind the annual Ocean Shores Woof-a-Thon (Aug. 13 at North Bay Park), even while she still recovers from an illness that left her hospitalized for the early part of this summer.

The Woof-A-Thon is Coming - Be Prepared!
"The amazing Woof-A-Thon will soon be happening at our North Bay Park in Ocean Shores. The day is scheduled on Saturday, August 13. This is an incredible festival celebrating dogs and their favorite people. It is already lining up to be a bigger event than in the past. The committee has come up with some fresh ideas. There will be more things to watch for on the walk. Stay tuned to learn more about some wild and crazy contests. New demonstrations are planned. There will be an ice cream truck, rock and roll music and more!
Right now the need is for volunteers. If you would like to help this fun, furry event contact Wilma Spike at 360-289-2553. Volunteers are needed in all sorts of categories. If you have organizational skills, why not get involved. There are some key positions open. But if you just want to help, you are important too.
Plan now to attend one for the most fun days of the year for your dog - and you!"
Harley Charitable Giving has awarded our Woof-a-Thon their sponsorship this year. They are a private contributor, and prefer it that way. We just want to make sure they know how much we appreciate the award, and all the good things that happen to needy animals because of it. We couldn't be successful without the sponsors. They are the backbone of the event. THANK YOU to all of them!!
We are so excited to have Levee Feed in as a major sponsor this year. They have donated treats and other items in the past years, but came in bigger last year with a booth, and stepped up to being a sponsor for 2015. Look for Ron and his dog at the Levee booth. And again, A HUGE THANK YOU for your involvement and support to the Woof-a-Thon.
A big Thank You goes out to Raintree Veterinary Clinic, who has consistently been a major sponsor for Woof-a-thon for 3 years now. Not only do they sponsor us, they also man a booth at the event. A good time to go visit with them, and see what they have to offer. Dr Brown will be on hand, and we just got a message while typing this. They will be doing $10 Rabies vaccinations, $20 Microchips, and FREE laser therapy. You may also bring cats in crates to take advantage of these reduced prices. We appreciate all that they do for animals.
Today we want to send out our appreciation for a Sponsor who has supported the Woof-a-Thon in the past and this year also. SEABROOK FOUNDATION awards grants to community projects and worthy enterprises in Grays Harbor County. For every home sold in Seabrook, a percentage of the sales price is put into a fund for these awards. They have helped countless groups achieve great things by giving a boost up with a monetary award.We are proud and grateful that they see the value in our event, with the money changing lives of animals, and thank SEABROOK very much for the vote of confidence. What a neighbor!
