Search for 2014 Women of Tracy Volunteer

The Tracy Women’s Forum Association has a long history of recognizing the outstanding women volunteers that keep our community strong through our Women of Tracy Program. Each year we honor three women in Tracy who give of themselves to make our city a great place to live.

TWFA will be accepting nominations for the 2014 Women of Tracy Awards September 1, 2013 through October 15, 2013. This year we are asking the community, those who see the impact our volunteers make to our schools and community organizations in the greater Tracy and Mountain House area, to nominate those women who have made a difference in our community. We invite the public to nominate their outstanding volunteers as candidates for the 2014 Women of Tracy.

Ripon girls make pet trinkets to help city

Proceeds donated to Ripon Animal Shelter

Three young Ripon girls, 8 to 11 years old, used their ingenuity to raise funds to support the Ripon Animal Shelter so that dogs and cats can be adopted.

First Sergeant Steve Merchant said the police department had been seeking donations from the community to assist with efforts to improve the Ripon Animal Shelter.  In June the shelter opened its doors to the community, holding tours and offering dogs and cats as pets.  It was apparently that tour that spawned the girls' thinking about what they could do to help.

Just prior to school opening for the new semester the girls, accompanied by their parents, visited the police department to donate the monies they had earned creating and selling beaded "Critters for Critters" that are used as key chains, keepsakes and decorations.

Annie Wild, 8, Kiley Holland, 10, and Alana Holland, 11, were thanked by Chief Ormonde for their donation of $31.10.

Dog Club wins $25,000 for park near Tracy, CA

A Mountain House dog club has won $25,000 to help build a dog park in the future city.

The club participated in the PetSafe "Bark for Your Park" campaign where the pet products company pledged to give away $200,000 to cities that earned the most votes, including a $100,000 grand prize and four $25,000 prizes.

Mountain House won the $25,000 prize for small cities, even though it's not yet been incorporated. Mountain House, a planned community about 5 miles west of Tracy, is run by a community services district.

PetSafe, which makes products ranging from collars to pet doors, sent a representative to Mountain House on Wednesday to present the dog club with an oversized check.

According to the PetSafe website, Mountain House tallied 137,643 votes. Second place small city Pontiac, Ill., received 48,903 votes.
