Coordinator Judith Harvell thanked the community for supporting the 13th annual show under very adverse conditionsrain.
The league also thanked the Town of Irvington and the Irvington Village Improvement Association for their cooperation and generosity, Roxy Moubray of Kilmarnock Lettering Co., Joyce Page of Shirley Perkins Memorial Fund for Animals, WIGO, and BAY-FM, Rappahannock Record and to all those that donated the great silent auction gifts, said Harvell.
A very special thanks to the Lancaster County Sheriff's Department officers and the demonstration with their K-9 companions, she said. This was a very eye-opening demonstration and the audience was captivated.
The league thanks Cyndi Moss of Savannah Joe’s Bar-B-Q for hot dogs and chips at the Commons, added Harvell. Moss donated all proceeds to AWL.
Harvell thanked the dog show sponsors and requests that supporters patronize their business. Copies of the show insert published in the October 10 Rappahannock Record are available at the thrift shop at 75 South Main Street in Kilmarnock.
Harvell thanks the event judges for doing an outstanding job. Theirs was not an easy task with so many wonderful dogs from which to choose, she said.
She also thanks the volunteers and friends for many hours devoted to putting the show together.
