meeting topic information. You do not need to be a member to attend.
Our monthly meetings are held at Millbrook Exchange Community Building at 1905 Spring Forest Rd, Raleigh, NC
27615. Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. and the time allotted for guest speakers is typically 7-8 p.m. with an additional
15-20 minutes for Q&A.
From Mary, our club president: The subject
for the February meeting is to discuss what it takes to host a dog show. We'll review the selection of judges, registration
with the AKC, permission from clubs we are hosting our specialty show along with, as well as, set-up, volunteer needs and
a whole lot more. It's important that the members know what all it takes to put on our yearly GSD specialty show as
it is how we raise money to support the club expenses.
The Next Meeting:

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!
