President's MessageJanuary, 2019

Hello NCNC!
What a wonderful Christmas Party we had!!  Connie Andronico graciously hosted the Club at her home in Kensington. I learned that the home had been built by her father in 1953 and many of the original touches that those of us from that era remember remained in the home.  I can remember having that turn-around holder in the bathroom for our cup and tooth brushes … Well, enough nostalgia.
There was great company, good food (thanks to everyone and specially Chef Kevin Gallagher) and lots of fun with the gift exchange.  We welcomed new general members Ted Hanson and Rosetta Phan to the group, as well.  Ted will be taking over the position of Web Master in the new year.
At the General Meeting (we had a quorum, yeah!), the Nominating Committee’s report was read and appears later in the NewfsPaper.  Nominations from the floor will be accepted at the next General Meeting on February 2nd.  If you intend to nominate someone from the floor, please make sure the person consents to the nomination in advance.  There is nothing worse than being drafted for a board position without knowing about it! 
Plans are fully underway for all of our events next year:  The Working Dog Committee under the able leadership of Patti Songroth is meeting (or did meet) on December 29th to plan for 2019; Entries have been received for the Golden Gate KC benched show but Lynne Baker is still looking for volunteers to staff the information table;  the Awards’ Banquet will take place on March 9th with chairs June Gibson and Dawn Druge announcing the location in the future; the Annual Picnic and Rescue Parade is set for June 1 with Patrick Benshoof and Lisa Lee at the helm; and the 2019 Regional chaired by Cathy Sayre and Laura Gallagher is well underway with judge’s already contacted.  It will be another fun-filled year so please get involved.
I hope everyone had a joyous holiday season and that you are ready to take on the new year.
Well, that’s it until next time.
