The Hopkinsville Dog Park has gotten some new features, thanks to the efforts of the Christian County High School Junior ROTC this week.
A group of students from the program have been hard at work since Monday morning, adding agility equipment to the park that dogs of all sizes will be able to use. Student Bradley Roberts described some of the work, saying the service is all about giving back to the community.
Commanding Officer Major Robert Marlow says this project is part of the unit’s community service project, and it teaches the kids important values.
Major Marlow says the unit recently received the designation of ‘distinguished unit’, which means they’re recognized at a national level and ranks them in the top 25 percent of ROTC unit’s. The students volunteer at multiple public events a year, including festivals, serving meals on Christmas Day and more.
