Former Captain L. Montalvan & service dog Tuesday
The Muhlenberg Community Library will honor veterans May 5th and 6th, with a presentation by Former U.S. Army Captain Luis Carlos Montalván and his service dog Tuesday, who will share his and Tuesday’s story and discuss Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT). Appropriate for adults and mature teens, the presentation is free for veterans, thanks to the generosity of their Gold Level sponsors, The Conrad Weiser Society and American Legion Ray A. Master Post 217. Time for book signings, “paw”-tographs and photo opportunities will be available. Attendees may bring cameras to take photos.
A $10 donation is requested for non-veterans, and ticket buyers will receive a chance to win a private photo session for their pet by Willow Street Pictures of Mount Penn. Ticket sale proceeds will be split between the Muhlenberg Community Library and PACT for Animals, a nonprofit that provides temporary foster care for pets of military families and hospital patients in need so that they can be reunited with their pets when they return home.
“We are incredibly honored that Fmr. Capt. Montalván and Tuesday are helping us honor veterans on Veterans Day,” states Lee Beth Cranmer, Muhlenberg Community Library Operations Manager. “The bond they have and the way Tuesday changed Montalván’s life are incredibly inspiring.”
For ticket and book reservations, call 610-929-0589 or visit the library by May 4. For more information, visit MuhlenbergCommunityLibrary.org and PACTForAnimals.org.
