We had an absolutely fabulous day for the picnic.
The weather cooperated all day, and we had a lot of
members, prospective members and of course
Newfs at the event.
Al and Tina Williams ran the games and they were
as much fun to watch as to enter. The food was
plentiful as always and the main course cooked to
perfection by Steve Hilker. Tracy Sherdan, one of
our newer members was great help with many
aspects of the picnic.
During the General Membership Meeting we elected
new Board Members, had updates from the committees
and reviewed the changes to the By-Laws.
All committee chairs for upcoming events need
more volunteers with many positions that do not
require any experience. This is a great way to get to
know more club members.
It was obvious that during the last year our Newfs
had fun and great success as the awards were
plentiful this year.
At a quiet point in the day a new member said, “Just look.” Everything seemed pretty ordinary so it
wasn’t immediately clear what she was talking about. She was in awe at the number of Newfs just
lounging around the park. Like many of us before joining the
club, she had only seen a few Newfs other than her own and
certainly not so many in one place. After a while, we forget
how wonderful it is
to see so many
beautiful and calm
With other club
members we have
a unique group of people who don’t freak out when our
dogs slobber on them and who like to share stories that
people with less monumental dogs don’t understand.
The day was a great success as we had
plenty of help, lots of members attending,
visiting and laughing all day long.
