| Very sad news to report to anyone who ever attended the Sandy Paws greyhound gathering in Jekyll Island GA.
One of the founding board members, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday June 19th of Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Wayne Baldwin got together with several friends one day who all wanted to go to Dewey Beach for their big gathering but were unable to make the long trip. After months of planning and scheming 7 of us came up with the idea to host our own gathering and called it Sandy Paws Great Fun in the Sun.
Wayne was active for several years in the organization but had to step down due to declining health. He was a big part of Sandy Paws and still took a small part when he was able to. Unfortunately, the last two years, he was unable to attend but always looked forward to hearing the reports on how much money was raised to help Greyhound Groups.
I'm sure when he passed, there was a large group of greyhounds welcoming him to his final reward.

|Sorry to hear this news. I asked Trish where he was the past few years. Didn't know he was ill. He was a nice fella and always liked seeing him every year at SP. RIP|
