Once again our Hostess was Bodil Aczel. Daffodils were in abundance, all around the room. You could tell the hope for Spring, is near.
Small little birdhouses, Peeps scattered on the table and the official chocolate eggs dressed all the tables. It’s the little details, Bodil never seems to forget.
The roaring fire set the tone for dinner. I believe, everyone enjoyed the meal.
This year we not only celebrated individual awards and accomplishments with our dogs, but we were honored by the American Kennel Club for our Community Service. We are one the first club’s to receive such an honor. Congratulations to every person who makes the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club what it is.
Thanks also to Peter Aczel for helping with this event and the night’s festivities.

Scholarships were awarded to both Jaclyn Christman and Kerri DeBaro.
