Following the tree lighting, shoppers can get a great start on Christmas Shopping by taking a stroll downtown through the Street of Lights. Many businesses will be open late, and shoppers will have a chance to win great raffle prizes by having the official Street of Lights map stamped by participating merchants.

The Inyo-Mono Master Gardeners to Host Workshop this Month

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT ON  CACTI & SUCCULENT WORKSHOP FROMINYO-MONO MASTER GARDENERS

Date: For Immediate Release, Nov. 1, 2014

Cacti and Succulent Workshop

The Inyo-Mono Master Gardeners would like to invite the general public to attend a workshop on cacti and succulents on Sunday, November 16, 2014, 2:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M. It will be held at the U.S. Forest Service Building on West Line Street in Bishop.

SUCCULENTS AND CACTI ARE ALL THE RAGE

Have you thought of using succulents in a bridal bouquet? How about using pumpkins and succulents for a Thanksgiving centerpiece? Is a Christmas cactus a staple in your house?

Cactus and succulents are perfect for the busy gardener as they require less maintenance and water in the garden and in the home. These plants are used in the home landscape, container gardening and indoor terrariums. They can be sculptural in the garden or used for the shape and color of their leaves.

Join the Inyo-Mono Master Gardeners, and learn about cacti and succulents. Sherry Cosgrove of Keeler Beach Farm and the Inyo Mono Master Gardener Program present a workshop on Sunday, November 16, 2014, 2PM-3PM at the US Forest Service Building, W. Line St. Bishop.

Learn about cacti and succulents from around the world. Propagation, soils and care and feeding of these unusual and exotic plants will be highlighted as we see many varieties on display. Attendees receive free cuttings and some plants will be for sale.

Questions to Susan Flaherty, Master Gardener Coordinator, 760 873-3179.

NEW This November, Bonefide Dog Training Outdoors

BONEFIDE DOG TRAINING HAS NEW OUTDOOR OFFICE

Bishop, CA—Starting November 1, 2014 Bonefide Dog Training will be closing its doors at 162 West Line Street in Bishop, and instead will be offering classes in various outdoor locations throughout Bishop and Mammoth.

“This is a great opportunity to go back to our roots and take classes outdoors, which is where we started the business.” explains Nancy Hardy, Owner and Trainer at Bonefide Dog Training. “Outdoor classes allow us to focus more energy on training, which is the heart and soul of our business.”

New locations for classes will be posted on the Class Schedule Calendar on Bonefide Dog Training’s web site, www.bonefidedogtraining.com as well as on their Facebook page.

Starting November 8th , Nancy will be offering two classes; Bonefide Basic Class which is a beginning dog training class for dogs 6 months and older who have had no prior training. This basic training class will run from 11am -12pm every Saturday for 6 weeks. And the Puppy Kindergarten is a class for puppies 10 to 17 weeks. This class will run from 1:30pm-2:30pm every Saturday for 6 weeks.

Nancy Hardy has been successfully training dogs for seven years and as a graduate of Animal Behavior College (ABC) has earned her certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer. ABC is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school.

For the past seven years, over 300 local canines have become better family members through Bonefide Dog Training. Raven Angeles confirms, “These classes are helpful should either you or your dog need a refresher on any topic or just want to extend class socialization.  It’s not always work, Nancy teaches educational, thinking and exercise games to keep your dog happy and healthy.”

For more information or to register your dog in a class, please call Nancy at 760-920-0006.
