2005 Flat-Coat Family Reunion

September 17, 2005
Black Hill Regional Park, Montgomery County, MD

Our Annual Family Reunion was held at Black Hill Regional Park, Montgomery County, MD, on September 17. It was a sunny, warm day and we had about 30 happy flat-coats with their 30 owners. The pot-luck lunch was wonderful, with Bernie Strozeski doing a superb job with the grill! Game winners went home with beautiful, pewter goblets (donated by Metro Graphic Communications) and pretty ribbons. Kathi Leonhardt and Deb Brady donated some gorgeous raffle prizes. Cheryl Beach made special bandanas for the pups. Sandy Bulger organized the hospitality and hauled the boxes. We accepted donations for dogs involved with Katrina Relief. Richard evaluated our CGC entries. Everyone pitched in and helped run our fun games.
