A memorial service for Piper, the dog who was a favorite of visitors and staff at Cherry Capital Airport, as well as across Traverse City, will be remembered tomorrow during a memorial service.
The service takes place at the City Opera House at 3, doors open at 2:30.
According to the Traverse City Ticker:
"A public memorial service and celebration of life will take place this Saturday (January 20) to honor Piper, the beloved Border Collie who helped with wildlife management at Cherry Capital Airport and was euthanized earlier this month following a battle with cancer.
The service is scheduled to begin at 3pm at the City Opera House in downtown Traverse City. Doors will open at 2:30pm. No tickets are needed; admission is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Jack O'Malley of WTCM will host the short service, which will feature guest speakers, a video tribute, and words from Piper's handler, Brian Edwards. Coffee and baked goods will be available in the lobby following the celebration. For those unable to attend, the event will be live-streamed on the Cherry Capital Airport K-9 Team Facebook page."
