2007 Membership picnic

On Sunday, GPA-Richmond had their annual membership picnic. This is a time to socialize, elect/introduce the new board of directors, give away some free stuff and catch up on the year's successes!
We start with a brief meeting
This year's president, Mark hands last year's president, Gil a thank you gift for all his hard work!
And the socializing...

A greyhound wannabe...
And meet your new board of directors: left to right Julie Shingleton, Tom McDonald, Deborah Messersmith, Brian Shaunessy, Gil Caldwell, Katrina Stumpf, Mark Lane. Not pictured Nerice Lochansky
And of course a greyhound event would not be complete without hounds running wild!
Alex didn't think anyone was looking..... can't blame it on poo

No photographers were harmed in the shooting of these pictures! ;-)
We look forward to a greyt new year of adoptions and events!!!!!
