On Sunday the 7th of May 2017 the GDAI had an informal meet and greet at Lough Boora Discovery Park, Boora, Co.Offlay.Many members decided to meet, walk and later picnic with their Danes and families. Our objective was for many new and old members might like to take the opportunity to meet and get to know each other better. Those of us who have agreed to gather have decided to contribute and collect on the day a small contribution towards Great Dane rescue also on the day. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine and there was a great turnout. All the Danes walking side by side pleasantly drew great attention and we finished the day with a wonderful picnic.
