Nex Meeting & Delayed Christmas Party

The next meeting is Jan. 28th.  Several people asked that we do our Christmas party then.  So we will meet at Cafe 37.  We will meet at 6:30 to order our meals.  I realize some folks can't make it that early.  You can still come to the meeting and order when you get there.

Please let me know if you plan on coming so I can give the restraunt an idea of how many people to expect.  Let me know also if you still want to do the gift exchange.

The next Monday night get together will be Jan. 6th.  Please let me know if you plan on coming so I can let you know if we should need to cancel. 

My phone number is 417-252-0349. - Beth

Canceling of Christmas Party and December Activities

We are cancelling the Christmas party that was supposed to be this Tuesday (12/11).  It sounds like the weather is supposed to improve over the upcoming weekend, but then turn bad again.  We were supposed to have a Monday night training next week, but it looks like the weather isn't going to cooperate.  So unless the weather changes drastically that is cancelled also.  See you in January.  Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ~ Beth

Monday, December 2nd - News & Updates

This coming Monday we will be meeting at Risner's Stable in West Plains with the dogs to do obedience and rally.  Please let me know if you will be there.  I'll check my e-mail this evening, otherwise give me a call and leave message.  417-252-0349.  That way if we have to cancel I can give you a call and save you a wasted trip.  If you don't know if I have your phone number, give me a call and I can save it on my phone.  The last time I had to cancel, I was frantically calling my husband to get him to look up numbers and call folks for me.  For those who don't know me well, I work for the Forest Service and can get called at any minute to fight fires.  I may not be where I can get to e-mail or phone book, but I'll do my best to call you and leave a message that it is cancelled. ~ Beth

Our December meeting (Christmas party) is Dec. 10th at Cafe 37.  We will get together at 6:30pm.  If you need to come later that is fine.  We will be voting on officers and board members.  That should be it for business.  If you would like to participate, we do the dirty Santa game for a gift exchange.  Please bring a wrapped gift, $10 suggested value limit.  It doesn't have to be dog related.  If you would like to come but haven't already let me know you are coming, please let me know by Wed so I can give the restraunt a final total. ~ Beth

We are not doing the Christmas parade this year as there are conflicting events for that weekend.~ Beth

We need to get sponsors for the March fun match to help off-set the cost of the civic center.  Plus we will be having a silent auction.  So if you can get businesses to donate money or an item for the auction that would be great.  There will be a sign hung up at the event listing them as a sponsor if they donate money.  Any item donated will have a sign with it saying who donated it. ~ Beth
