The Awards Banquet had a very nice turnout, close to thirty. VIP went to Gordon and very well deserved. We had a major problem at our show last November in Springfield. The reserved grooming was way over booked and Gordon stepped right up and handled the problem. Excellence awards went to Bambi and Dara, these two have been breeding exceptional dogs consistently for many years. Service Awards went to Patti Mole and Sherry, both gave much of there time for the club this last year. We are very lucky to have such good members in our club, not just the ones that got awards, we have many members who work very hard for this club, and I thank you all.
