General Club Meetings

These usually take place once each month (June, 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 at people's home with a "pot luck" dinner activity.  Directions will be posted and 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:  Saturday, January 20th, 2018   10:00 AM

 LOCATION:  General Club meeting, at Sereno park.

PROGRAM:  Brunch event.  Bring your dogs.  Awards for titles earned in 2017 will be handed out and voting for next year's officers will take place.
