Nashoba Tech Goes to the Dogs for a Day
Students and staff in the Veterinary Assisting program at Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford recently held the first annual DOGtoberfest, with students and the general public bringing in their dogs (and other favorite pets) for a day of fun, games, “pawdicures,” raffles, a bake sale and a presentation by the Littleton Police Department K-9 Unit. DOGtoberfest benefited the Veterinary Assisting program, which partners with Angell Memorial Medical Center at the Angell at Nashoba Clinic.
