Baby itís cold outside! So plan to join us on Saturday, January 20th 2007* for PVBMDCís annual Winter Warm-up at the Catoctin Kennel Club at Point of Rocks, Maryland.
Bring your Berners and a brown bag lunch & beverage and the club will serve up hot homemade soup and dessert.
We will start at 11 AM with lunch and socializing, followed by a meeting at noon. If enough members attend to make up a quorum, we can have an official meeting Ė so please try to make room on your calendar for this and show support for your club.
