Wow, the 12th Annual New England Show was a blockbuster, with over 100 visitors!

A show like this is the result of many, many people working hard to bring everything together. THANK YOU to everyone who helped in ways big and small. I apologize in advance to anyone I may inadvertently leave out. Thank you Libby,
Donna and the rest of the board. Thank you, perhaps most especially, to the judges: KJ, Amy, Libby, Donna, and Leigh. This event literally could not happen without you! And HUGE thanks to our astonishingly patient and organized
secretary, Jo, who had an enormous job keeping us all organized. Thank you health inspectors: Donna, Libby, Rebecca, Amy and Jennie. Thank you Diane and Joanne for taking on the very popular photo contest, raffle and auction. Thank
you Leslie for entertaining us with your adorable tale of Jackie the Jumping Gerbil. Thank you Judith for your wonderful creative work on the treasure hunt and your unflagging enthusiasm. Thank you Beth for managing the rollicking Pet
Class competitions. Thank you Caroline for expertly judging the 13 Mock Show entries with professionalism and admirable stamina. Thank you Jenn for running the popular agility demos. Thank you to everyone who pitched in at the front
desk: Timmy, Susan, Sean, Shereen, Cathy, Sarah and Sami. Thank you Anise for cheerfully taking on all sorts of tasks. Thank you Steve for being everywhere you were needed at exactly the right time. Thank you AGS members for coming and
making the show such a success. I loved being back and seeing you all. Can't wait for the next one!

Thank you to all the AGS members that made the show as awesome as it was. Dahlia, Bill and I had a blast and our gerbils did too! Bill is already looking forward to future shows. Haha.

Just checking my emails today and I had to giggle because Libby had used the same word in an email yesterday that I put in a comment on Facebook a few hours ago: camaraderie. It really describes this group. I am so very thankful for
all of you and your friendship. I had such a blast at my first show as a participant, and I really, really, really appreciate everyone's patience and cheerfulness in answering all of this newbie's questions (and switching my gerbils to the correct classes!!) :)
Thanks again!!
