Mark your calendar for December 1, 2022 at 6:30pm, Pasco Grange, 6300 W. Court Street. The Christmas Committee Chair is Cindi McInturf and her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please free free to email Cindi if you would like to be on the committee to help with donations mentioned in the November newsletter and/or planning this event.
RKC is a big supporter of the Toys for Tots and Benton-Franklin Humane Society. Please bring an unwrapped toy(s) for a child and/or a donation for the Humane Society to the Christmas party. All donations will be collected and delivered by the Club to the respective organizations. The Humane Society can use food, towels, litter, toys, blankets, collars, and crates. If you would like to give a cash donation please contact to Cindi.
We ask those of you that will be joining the festivities on December 1 to bring a side dish for passing. The Club will provide the ham, utensils, water, cups, and napkins. In addition to bringing a side dish, I would also suggest brushing up on holiday trivia and holiday songs. Valerie Brown kicked booty last year and took away almost every prize offered. So come hungry, bring your game face and be ready for holiday fun!
Need to practice your handling skills? Maybe your dog needs help learning how to free stack or stand for an exam. This is your opportunity to work on the perfect down and back and a smooth go around.

If your dog has a current vaccination record on file, no need to bring another. Weather alerts will be posted on the RKC Facebook page, so please like our page to be informed of class cancellation.
