Dogs and their owners took to the lawn at the Standish Historical Depot Aug. 24 for the “Bark For Life” program held by Arenac County Relay For Life. The event took place due to the fact dogs were not allowed at the Relay in July, and organizer Denise Dunn said this gave dog owners an opportunity to walk a Relay route around the bandstand for the cause of fighting cancer and helping survivors.
