Letter from the Board of Directors February 15, 2021
2020 was a year that most of us would like to forget. The pandemic sidelined all of our planned activities and even threatened our future endeavors. In the depths of the quarantine, we did not hold our election of officers in November.
But now we have begun a new year. Vaccination rates are gaining momentum and infection rates are starting to drop, giving us all hope for a return to our favorite dog activities, albeit in a modified form, at least in the near future.
With renewed hope we propose to hold our election online and just pick up where we left off, to plan some awesome workshops, competitions and just plain fun get-togethers, socially distanced of course.
At our Zoom meeting on Jan. 30, 2021, our president Toni Pearson announced that she was stepping down as our long time president. The group asked Randy Sutton if he would be willing to take on that position. Randy stated that his work is in Limbo and that he may have a lot of traveling coming up in the near future. He initially declined, but then stated that he would consider it.
In the meantime, several of us did some brainstorming and nominated a slate of willing candidates. Sharon Olsen is willing to run for president. Laura Pearson is willing to run for vice president, Kasey Halma is willing to run for secretary, Linda Lohdefinck is willing to run for treasurer and L’eo Washburn is willing to serve as Board Member at Large. L’eo is also willing to continue on as Membership Chair. Installing officers now would give us lead time to plan events.
It was our thought to post these candidates for a period of time on our member website and invite any and all who would also be interested, to put their hats in the ring. After gathering all that data, the membership could vote online.
During our Zoom meeting several ideas for activities and workshops were brought forward. A Farm Dog Certification workshop, a Tricks workshop and a Dock Diving workshop were just a few of our ideas. Other ideas floated in earlier meetings included Nose Work, Barn Hunt, Treiball and of course, our annual Herding workshop.
These are all activities we could offer outside in a safe environment, but still enjoy working with our canine best buddies while re-kindling our friendships and getting to know our newest members.
Please give us your thoughts on this proposal.
Your past officers,
Sharon Olsen, L’eo Washburn, Linda Lohdefinck and Laura Pearson.
