February in Central New York, a good time to walk inside Shoppingtown Mall, especially if the weather is blustery and cold. There is an outside route as well for the hardy adventurers. Check out all the corners and corridors to see what new stores and facilities have come into the Mall and take advantage of any sales and goodies available on this Valentine’s Day weekend. Registration will be in a corner space opposite the upstairs mall entrance to JCPenney. The nearest outside entrance is Mall Entrance #2 (south side) with TGIFriday’s on one side and TAMA LaCrosse on the other side at those doors.
On Saturday at 9:45am, the “15 Minutes of Fame” will feature Vanessa Malone from Helping Hounds Dog Rescue (HHDR). HHDR is a not-for-profit organization that has facilitated adoptions of over 1,000 dogs a year; dogs that would otherwise have been euthanized due to overcrowding. As a special treat, the Mall management is allowing Vanessa to bring one of the HHDR dogs with her! Vanessa will let us know where they get their dogs, how the dogs are prepared for adoption, what is involved in running the shelter and much more.
