Fall Picnic





It’s almost time for our annual fall picnic. The BIG NEWS is we are changing the venue to the John Beltz Retreat Center.  The same place where we host the spring picnic every year.  Many people love the retreat center and they have asked why we can’t have the fall picnic here too?  So we booked it.  There is an enclosed shelter house with picnic tables.  So there are a lot of places to sit. You may want to bring folding chairs if you want to sit outside. 

The date is Sunday October 29 from 12p-4p.  Hot dogs. Hamburgers and drinks will be provided.  Please bring a dish to share. Names ending in A-K bring a dessert, L-R an appetizer and S-Z a side dish.  The food is always amazing so I can’t wait to see what you will bring! 

Since John Beltz is privately owned, the dogs can go off leash.  We are far away from the road and there is a lot of room for them to run. It is very safe for our Goldens.  We are scheduled to have a hay ride after we eat and Kay Hirsch has our annual meeting. We will probably eat around 1pm.

I hope you all can make it the address is 4834 Harlem Rd. Galena, Oh.  Check the Golden Endings Golden Retriever website for the link to John Beltz Retreat. Please RSVP to Connie Walker 614-459-3659.


This is a great annual event and a whole bunch of fun and it helps our Goldens! Please call and volunteer. Thanks!!

Kroger Community Rewards Program

Very important message to GEGRR MEMBERS!! You must re-enroll in the Kroger Community Rewards Program beginning April , 2017…so all members enrolled must go online to re-establish Golden Endings as their charity for the up-coming year to continue earning rewards for our Goldens! please visit today.

More info about the Kroger Rewards Program:

“April showers bring May flowers.” April is also open enrolment for the Kroger Community Rewards program! Even if you’ve been a part of this fund raiser for years you must re-enroll for the remainder of 2017 to keep your account active.

April is also a great time to begin supporting GEGRR; the steps are simple. All you need is a Kroger Plus Card, a valid e-mail address and an on-line Kroger account! Go directly to and follow the prompts, here you may update your current account or create a new account. The GEGRR account number is 80431.

Please note this rewards program in no way affects your personal rewards, it is an additional perk for non-profit organizations. Through our members’ generous support Golden Endings receives a quarterly donation of $750 to $900. Amazing! We currently have only 80 households enrolled, imagine how much greater our rewards could be with more members participating. Oh no—you missed the April open enrollment! No problem. The month of May or any month is a great time to enroll or re-enroll. For more detailed information or any questions you may have, please contact Cathy Taylor at
