Favorite Show Moments (from the AGS Yahoo Group)

Big thanks to EVERYONE who helped out - my thanks especially to Neil and Jennie who did a splendid job at the front desk; Ruth and Emily who very ably ran the Pet Class on their own and kept the kids busy and happy, doing TWO chewing contests and Mock Shows so as not to disappoint anyone; Steve for wrangling the microphones; Emily and Robin for managing the raffle and auction action; KJ for the history of Blues display (fittingly and coincidentally on a Finnish national holiday) and the fun maze event; Diane for the popular photo contest; Jo and Michele for keeping it all official; Leslie for the beautiful music; Web for the games; Rebecca for bringing in the House Rabbit Network; Madeline and everyone who painted the beautiful Parade Gerbils; Donna for the great scrapbook poster; all the judges who worked so hard for so many hours examining our little furries; and Libby for absolutely everything.
As always, it was over too soon!
