I want to thank our outgoing board members Tricia Stanczyk, Kathleen Owsley and Nancy Dougherty. These ladies’ tireless efforts on the board will be missed. At the same time, I welcome new board members Mary Strom-Bernard, Peggy Crane, Brenda Koeppel and returning director Michelle Hess. I would be remiss if I did not thank Patty Burmeister, our outgoing President and Michelle Hess, our outgoing Treasurer. We are fortunate to have Gary Koeppel continuing on as our AKC Delegate. I am very excited about the upcoming year! This board has a great energy level and there are a lot of projects that our committees will be working on. I encourage each member to get involved, as our club is what we all make it. There is a lot of talent within our membership and any assistance is greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays to you and your families!
