The 2007 Awards Dinner at the Crab Cracker restaurant was another very enjoyable evening for the Club members that were able to attend. A short business meeting was held before dinner was served. Jan’s new puppies were a main topic of conversation along with the meaning of the letters behind Dante’s name.
Our August show is coming together very nicely. We will have several more Specialty Clubs participating this year than we have had in past years. The Evergreen Golden Retriever Club will be joining us once again and holding their Specialty Show on Saturday. Mount Rainier Working Dog Club will also be joining us. The Western Washington Hound Association will again be hosting 3 days of Agility Trials on the fields across the street from our Show grounds. Since the Great Popsicle Give Away was so much fun last year, we are going to do it again this year. If you would like to join any of the Show Committees, please contact Bo Gloster or myself. There is still a lot of work to be done and your participation is more than welcome.
The Benevolence Committee report will be given at the next meeting in April. If you have any sugges-tions for the dispersal of our benevolence funds, please contact me as soon as possible. Looking forward to seeing everyone at our 9 April meeting. Bo will have a report from the March AKC Delegates Meeting which should be much more complete than the synopsis printed in the AKC Gazette.
