The Next Meeting:
2, 2019 - From Mary our club president: Our January club meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 2rd. Meeting
will take place at Millbrook Exchange Community Building located at 1905 Spring Forest Rd, Raleigh, NC 27615, Meeting
time is 7-9 p.m. We will start our meeting no later than 7:10 p.m.
We do not have a speaker for our January program.
I have several good ones lined up but no one I talked to were available for January....too close to New Years Day. However,
lets get together and visit. We can plan for 2019. Perhaps discuss 'new members' packet - which we tossed around in the past
but I think it's a good idea to formalize the packet and get it to members. Everyone's input on what the packet should contain
We also have a big event coming up in conjunction with our club specialty show in the spring, We are hosting
the SE area Futurity/Maturity specialty show....this is a big deal for our club. Not only does it provide additional monies
but brings in a lot of people. We are also planning a 'fun match' for puppies which I will explain more about at the meeting.
ALSO, 2019 club dues are due as I have to submit membership list and fee to our parent club and AKC. Individual members
dues are $20. and family is $25. Please bring a check or cash and submit to Marty Stuhmer.
Hope to see a big turnout
for the meeting. And thanks to all of you who participated in keeping our club going and successful in 2018.
At our meeting on Wednesday August 5, we had a special guest, Donnie
Harrison, Wake County Sheriff. He and his K-9 Sargent discussed selection and training for the K-9 police.
Always a popular and engaging presentation, each of the stories that they shared clearly demonstrated their love for their
jobs and the genuine concern and commitment that they have for their community. Thank you Sheriff Harrison!
