These usually take place once each month (July and August excepted) selected in order to avoid conflicts with major holidays and/or major local shows.
In an effort to make meetings more interesting and non-intrusive regarding the dinner hour, the board decided to have meetings take place a people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity. Directions will be sent out each month with the host's address. Also it will be possible to access maps to the current host, on this website.
Our Next regular meeting: Friday, October 3rd, at 7:00 PM
LOCATION: Corinne Kuklovsky's house. Click here for directions
PROGRAM: Informal talk on Degenerative Myelopathy (DM). Discussions about the new show location in December.
Tuesday, May 20th, 2014, was the last official session of these activities -- it is getting too hot for the dogs.
Keep checking the website, starting around Mid September, to see when these activities will actually resume.
Everyone is invited so bring the whole family.
This is a great place to meet people and their dogs.
