AUGUST Meetings

Hi Club members. We plan on getting together on Sunday the 28th for some dog training and socialization at the Newtown Fairfield Hills site at 12:30 if enough people are interested. Please let us know if you can make it and I will respond to everybody later on Saturday if we have enough members and dogs to have the session. If we do I will send directions.
