I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving and you got stuffed as well as the Turkey!
As we promised, Dave made the pop corn and we played the DVD, AKC’s Tribute to the SAR Dogs of 9/11. It was an impressive reminder of how important these dogs are in an emergency. And to show how much they are appreciated.
We voted to support the CAR emergency fund for “Sandy” by donating $1000.00. This was the same amount that we sent for the Katrina rescue effort.
The next event we have coming up is the Xmas Party at Angelo’s Risto-rante on the 5th of December. The gift exchange will be set at the usual amount of $20.00. Because I never get to hold onto anything I pick for long, [I’m such a good picker] if someone wants to tell me what they would like me to pick for them, let me know. [vbg] I think I must have lost my pick about 5 times last year. Some great gifts were under the tree.
When I sent my notice out for Stewards, I did an Ooops. I noted the right day , we show on SUNDAY this year, but the wrong date. Should have been January 13. So if you marked your calendar the 12th , please correct it. Barbara is the RSVP for the Judge’s Banquet. It is important especially this year to respond to her. We are holding a joint dinner with the other Clubs of the Cluster on Saturday evening [that is the 12th]. The Club will be charged per head count. And the Club that is in charge of the dinner will need an accurate count for the caterer. firstname.lastname@example.org write this down. I will send it again next Barker, she does a lot of our Hospitality so it wont hurt to put her in your phone book.
See you at the Xmas Party! Social hour at 6pm and dinner at 6:30pm Brief meeting to elect 2013 Officers and Board.
