New Business:

Kathy Norfleet stated she thinks we need to recruit new members because there are many things to be done, and so much more we could be doing. She also stated she feels that the meetings need to be under better control to avoid multiple conversations.

To Kathy’s idea, Bonnie would like to see a Perspective Member sheet on the tables at our Show. Brian was asked to make a sheet.

Barbara R. said she agreed with Kathy because people coming to her classes are looking for things to do with their dogs.

It takes a big man to show a small dog,
It takes a REAL man to show a hairless one.
