Once again Deborah and Ellis Stern hosted our annual Luau and Awards Dinner on August 13, 2016. We gathered on a very warm summer evening to celebrate our members’ – human and K9s – accomplishments. We visited, made and renewed friendships and conducted a brief meeting highlighting our upcoming events – including the fall conformation speciality, obedience and rally trials in September and our February herding trials – and per usual enjoyed a fabulous feast!
