MEDIA RELEASE - Community invited to learn from local faces

11 July 2017

If you have ever wanted to learn more about dog training, overseas travel or geocaching now is your chance to do so thanks to Glenelg Libraries.

The ‘What I Know About’ is a series of Glenelg Talks featuring local people sharing their knowledge and expertise on particular topics of interests.

The talks will take place each Saturday in July at the Portland Library.

Information Services Manager Yvette Parker said she was looking forward to gaining insider tips and tricks, with the first ‘What I Know About’ talk taking place on Saturday July 15.

“This Saturday we will officially launch the ‘What I Know About’ series as Jacqui Muskee discusses the ins and outs of dog training,” she said.

“Animals are a big part of Jacqui's life; she currently owns four dogs and has extensive experience in dog training, both in a professional and voluntary capacity.

“Many community members may recognise Jacqui from the Portland Dog Obedience Club. where she was an obedience instructor for more than 17 years.

“If you want to learn the tricks of the trade of dog training, or if you simply want to build upon your relationship with your fur family member, then come along to this free event on Saturday.”

Ms Parker reminded residents to keep an eye out for upcoming talks featuring more familiar faces.

“During the next month we will host avid overseas traveller Andrea Bolte and Peter McGrath, a geocaching expert.

“Andrea has visited more than 130 cities across the world and will offer tips for travelling smarter, better and cheaper.

“Peter, who has been geocaching for more than nine years, will provide some insight on how to get the best out of the addictive outdoor activity, which can be best described as an outdoor treasure hunt using a GPS.

“There will be some truly fascinating discussions that will come out of these events and some insider secrets will be revealed.”

What I Know About Dog Training with Jacqui Muskee will take place at the Portland Library between 11am -12:00pm on Saturday 15 July 2017. This is a free event and no bookings are required.
