Dublin will open its southern community pool to pooches Sept. 7.

Before the Dublin Community Pool South, 6363 Woerner Temple Road, closes for the season, it will hold the annual pooch pond from 5:30 to 7:45 p.m. Sept. 7.

Dogs under 50 pounds may swim in the pool from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and dogs over 50 pounds will have the pool from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.

Each dog must have an adult with it at all times. Any dog that acts aggressively toward another dog or person will be asked to leave. Dogs can be taken off the leash when they get in the water.

The fee for pooch pond is $5 per dog for residents and $7 per dog for a resident guest.

The Dublin Counseling Center will help those affected by a violent death with a new support group.

"Weathering the Storm: Coping with the Aftermath of Violent Death" is a support group for adults who have gone through the death of a loved one due to violence or other tragedies. It will begin meeting Sept. 1.

The group will offer information on grief, loss and coping after a sudden death; a chance to meet other survivors and share experiences; and an opportunity to give and receive support and compassion.

Professional facilitators for the group will be on hand during meetings.

The group will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. the first and third Thursday of each month at the Dublin Counseling Center, 299 Cramer Creek Court.

The meetings are free, but pre-registration is required and can be completed by calling (614) 889-5722.
