General Breakfast Meeting at Sereno Park -- 8:30 AM
This will be the final general meeting before summer
* Hosted by GCGSDC
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: Sunday, January 25 -- 12:00 Noon
LOCATION: The Ebertins' house
PROGRAM: Annual awards banquet and fund raising auction. Bring a wrapped present (minimum value $15) for the auction. If you can't make it to the meeting then have someone bring your present to be auctioned.
Everyone is invited so bring the whole family.
This is a great place to meet people and their dogs.
If you haven't done so see information regarding snake proofing your dog. This can save its life!
Tell us about your Obedience interests here.
Events take place on Tuesday nights. See pictures from a recent class.
