President’s Message Fall 2013
Earlier this year, a few Club Members embarked on a ‘treasure hunt’ of sorts. My winter and spring messages included a reference to our Historian’s Archive review and a call for members to search closets and attics for items that might be shared with the membership, or included in our 50th Anniversary Edition Dirty Beards Quarterly. While Historian Debbie Gschwender dove into boxes, boxes, and more boxes of Club Archives, we got a clearer picture of what we had, and did not have. Sadly, a common member response, heard more often than not, was “...all that stuff was pitched when we moved a couple of years ago.”
By mid-June, a small army was assembled to help find missing items to make our 50th Anniversary Celebration come to life, through pictures, video, and archived documents. Thank you Judy Kasper, Jeannette Nieder, Nancy Eilks, and Judith Abramsohn for helping us fill the gaps we found in our Specialty BOB Photo collection from the early years. Thank you Debbie Gschwender for spending hours reading through the newsletters gleaning notable ‘first ever’ titles and validating early year lists of Show locations, Show Chairs, Judges, and Winners. Thank you, Lee Calhoun, Nancy Scott, and Sandi Lyon for sharing your personal archive collection with the Club. And, thank you individual members for answering the call or email when we ran into a dead end.
To my band of ‘treasurer hunters’, and you know who you are, my heartfelt thanks for leaving no stone unturned, no path not wandered, and for pursuing every odd lead until our mission was accomplished.
For the Love of the Breed,
