NEADS World Class Service Dogs holds its Fall Graduation Ceremony at 2 p.m. Nov. 5 at Montachusett Regional Vocational Technical School, 1050 Westminster St. in Fitchburg. The public is invited and welcome.

Stacy Berloff, with NEADS service dog Billy, and Myra Berloff, Stacy’s mother and former Director of the Massachusetts Office on Disability, are the guest speakers. Stacy Berloff has been part of the NEADS family since 1997, when she was matched with her first service dog, Ricki. Billy joined Stacy’s life in 2009. Attendees also will hear the personal stories of the graduating teams and be treated to a demonstration of typical service dog team “on the street” encounters.
