MNSR Sheltie Reunion 2016

Don't Miss It - - The MNSR "Sheltie Reunion" is coming up on April 16, 2016
You and your Sheltie(s) are invited to attend the annual Sheltie Reunion coming up on Saturday, April 16th. Once again the Reunion will be held at Twin Cities Obedience Training Club (TCOTC) in Northeast Minneapolis, from 11:30am to 3:00pm.
We'll have lunch, MNSR merchandise for sale, vendors and exhibitors, and of course a Silent Auction. Jessie's Photography will be taking professional photos of your dog (and you). We also have some awesome raffle items - a handmade Sheltie-theme quilt and a flat screen TV

 

 
You and your Sheltie can participate in the Sheltie Games (peanut butter lick-off and more) to win medals and prizes! We will again have the Sheltie Parade so you can show off your Sheltie and share your Sheltie success story with all of our attendees!
 
If you would like to bring a crate for your Sheltie, there is a quiet area that will allow him to rest while you eat and browse the Silent Auction.
 
Photos for Sheltie Posters:
We are again going to make posters with adopted Sheltie photos to display at the Reunion. If you want to have your dog's picture included in the poster, please send an email with a photo to Mel at melspetpals@gmail.com. Please include the name of your Sheltie and the year adopted. Send 1 picture per dog - it does not need to be a professional photo. The deadline to submit photos is April 1, 2016.
 
Silent Auction Donations:
If you wish to donate an item or basket for the Silent Auction, it is very much appreciated! Items must be new and a minimum value of $5 or more. Baseball (or other event) tickets, gift cards, or theme baskets are some suggestions. You can bring a basket the day of the event (need by 11:30) or you can arrange to drop items off in advance in Golden Valley, or we may also be able to arrange for a pick-up of your item(s). Please provide the value of your donation - we generally start minimum bids at 50% of the value.
 
Volunteers Needed:
If you would like to volunteer an hour or two of your time at the event, we have a variety of areas where we can use your help. We need help in the Kitchen (set up, serving, cleanup), Silent Auction, Sheltie games, assisting the Photographer, greeting attendees, and other areas. It's a great way to meet other MNSR adopters and supporters. We also need help before and after the event. 
 
RSVP:
We need your RSVP so we can plan lunch and have name tags and packets ready for each person who attends. To RSVP, arrange to donate an item, volunteer, or for any other information about the Sheltie Reunion, please email Judy at jmbell@fastmail.net.
 
Leashes Required:
Just a reminder, all dogs must be on leashes (please no retractable leashes) at all times, inside and outside the building. Please be aware of what your Sheltie is doing while you are browsing the Auction and Vendors. There are clean-up stations located in several areas.
 
 
Please send an email to jmbell@fastmail.net if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you at the Reunion!
