Owney Visits for 2015-16


This is Owney’s tentative schedule for 2015-16 visits. It can be flexible to accommodate vacations and busy mail seasons. You have more time to enjoy his visit and have activities with him. If another school joins there is time on the end before he comes home.

Owney the Traveling Dog

Join our classes mailing Owney around the country.
Would you care to visit with Owney?  Join Us! Mail a request owney@rsu1.org

In Owney box you will find him wearing some pins from states last year.
That way everyone will get to see an Owney with pins. You may add a pin or something fairly light to the box.
In the box there is also a photocopied book of "Owney" by Lynn Hall. We also have a copy on this site. We have permission for the copying. Please make sure these copies are in the box when it is sent on to the next school.
Remember to send Owney <owney@rsu1.org> an email so we can keep track of his travels. Please also email the next school letting them know he is on his way. I will post the emails on this site.
Please remember to send post card to all the schools.
We hope you enjoy the project.
