|Attention all pet owners: Kelton’s wants to feature Fido (or Kitty or Polly) as its Pet of the Week.
The locally owned hardware and pet store has officially launched its Pet of the Month campaign, which will feature photos of pets and their owners on Kelton’s Facebook page and website.
“Each month, one lucky pet and their owner will be chosen to receive their choice of a free bag of pet food up to 20 pounds,” according to a press release.
Contestants must “Like” Kelton’s Hardware and Pet Facebook page before they can upload one photo per month to enter the contest.
“We get so many pet owners and their pets in our store every day that we believed it would be a great opportunity for them to show off their pets and win some prizes,” owner Jason Kelton said. “We’re looking forward to seeing all of the fantastic photos.”
This unique and fun campaign will go year round and can include any and all domestic pets. The monthly winners must receive their prizes in person and will be showcased at the store’s upcoming spring pet event, which will be called Kelton’s Pet Day in May.
Much like the store’s inaugural Fall Family Fest in November last year, pet owners will be invited to have their photos taken, enjoy lots of food and drinks, and receive free gifts and discounts on merchandise.
Kelton’s is the home of Murfreesboro’s only FreeDogWash.com. For more info visit keltons.com, call 615-893-5125 or visit the store at 2870 Old Fort Parkway in Murfreesboro.
Two local community leaders have been nominated for RutherfordCABLE awards, the professional business group announced last week.
Dr. Jean Anne Rogers, an optometrist and community leader, has been named the 2012 ATHENA nominee from RutherfordCABLE, and Dawn Nasoori, a community leader, has been named the 2012 ATHENA Young Professional Leadership nominee from RutherfordCABLE.
Twenty-nine area women from 29 sponsoring organizations are 2012 Athena Nominees, while 21 area women from 21 sponsoring organizations are 2012 Young Professional Leadership nominees. The 2012 ATHENA Award event will be held March 26, at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
For the past 20 years, the Nashville ATHENA Award and Scholarship program has honored outstanding women for their skills in business, leadership and service to the community.
In 1993, ATHENA added a scholarship program to help afford access to higher education and to help build the pipeline of future leaders.
Last year, the Scholarship Program awarded $21,000 in scholarships to six deserving recipients in four categories, based upon a 300-word essay and superior academic performance.
“We are thrilled that Jean Anne Rogers is representing RutherfordCABLE for this prestigious award,” said 2012 RutherfordCABLE President Paula Mansfield. “Jean Anne’s life is a representation of these distinctive ways of leading – the very principles outlined in the ATHENA Leadership model – into a blueprint that aspiring leaders can follow.”
Mansfield continued, “In the Young Professionals Leadership Award category, we are equally pleased that Dawn Nasoori is representing our organization. This award recognizes emerging women leaders for exemplary leadership, and Dawn’s example is just that. She has spearheaded numerous efforts for our organization demonstrating excellence, creativity and initiative.”
