2012-2011

2012 Awards and Membership Appreciation Banquet

Our hostess for the evening was Bodil Aczel, who put together a evening to remember. The room was filled with signs of Spring and Easter. The attention to detail was evident, from the beautiful gift baskets that were door prizes, the pretty Daffodils, and chocolate eggs, it was just perfect.
We celebrated with dinner, around a roaring fireplace and we honored not only those who earned AKC titles in 2011 but also all members who stepped up, contributed their time, and worked hard to put our club back on a solid financial basis.

Special thanks to Peter Aczel, Pat Mickowski, Deb Gunkle, Shirley Spinelli and Rocco Spinelli who helped Bodil with the evenings festivities.

Awards were presented for Therapy Dog, AKC Rally Novice, AKC Champion, Breeder of AKC Champion, AKC Grand Champion, AKC Tracking Dog, AKC Junior Hunter, AKC Rally Advanced Excellent, AKC Master Agility Champion 2, LVKC Life Members, AKC Sportsmanship Award and LVKC Outstanding Members Awards.

We also presented our Scholarship Award to this year’s recipient Lori Biege.

LEHIGH VALLEY KENNEL CLUB’S

2011 Annual Awards Presentation


It’s awards time! Time to honor our members who have achieved a noteworthy accomplishment in the sport of dogs.

In 2010 gas prices were up, entries were down, and the competition was tough – and yet many of our members persevered.

Our evening began with a Pot Luck Buffet meal provided by the membership. We then settled in with our hosts Nancy and Roy Kapanka for the presentation part of the evening. Our Outstanding Members Awards were given out by Pat Mickowski.

Awards were presented for Therapy Dog, AKC Rally Advanced, AKC Rally Excellent, AKC Beginner Novice, AKC Champion & Breeder of Champion, AKC Grand Champion, Life Member, AKC Sportsmanship Award and LVKC Outstanding Members Awards.
