Board Meeting 12 pm

General Meeting 1 pm

Please bring along a chair, dog crate, dog leash, portable fan (if you have one), and lots of water for you and your Newfoundland. Be prepared for the heat!!

Following our meeting we will be conducting Steward Training for the HANC water test which will be held at Kill Creek Lake on September 3rd and 4th. Those interested need to wear their swim suit and have a Coast Guard approved life vest along with water shoes which are both required at all times to be on the beach. No exceptions! It is important that we have people who are interested in being stewards attend this training session to learn what is required. It is a lot of fun, and something you will remember for a long time. If you wish to attend the steward training, please let me know so we may be prepared.

Any questions, please feel free to contact me at gary_meyer@comcast.net or 913.424.7293. Hope to see you at Kemper and join in the fun!
