We have two updates for you regarding the health clinic scheduled to be held at the National Specialty this year.
Firstly, this is to confirm there will be an OFA Eye Clinic on Saturday and Sunday 6/19/21 & 6/20/21! Please email Pam Metts Boyer to make your appointment(s) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And then secondly and unfortunately, Dr. Laura Hatton, the cardiologist who was scheduled to do the heart clinic, has notified us that she will not be able to attend the specialty due to an emergency family illness. Dr. Hatton sends her deepest regrets for those who had planned on this testing opportunity, and in turn, we wish Dr. Hatton’s family healing and prayers during this difficult time.
After being notified of this, efforts were made within the two state vicinity to locate another board-certified cardiologist with a mobile unit, and unfortunately, none are available.
This is a reminder that our May meeting is Friday, 05/14 at 4pm PT/5pm MT/6pm CT/7pm ET.
I’ll update this post with an agenda next week.
Also below is the call in information. You can join the meeting from your computer or electronic device using the URL, or you can call in using the phone number below. (Please use one or the other; calling in from both causes an echo on the call.)

ABC Club members, please know that a financial review committee (audit) has been appointed and approved. Many thanks to Caitlyn Bailey (chair), Susan Pamplin-Griffin, Crystal Bomer, and Regina Fasold for volunteering for this committee and the tasks involved. Treasurer Ashley DeNoma is providing statements for them to review, and will be available to the committee for their questions. This review will cover 01/01/2019 – 12/31/2020 for all ABC accounts including the PayPal account, and is scheduled to be conducted from 05/01/2021 – 7/31/2021, with a report to the membership in the August meeting. Also, this committee will provide three estimates for potential external audit providers that can be presented to the club, if it seems that an external review is warranted. It is our hope and intention that this review provides the transparency that the club deserves, while taking incremental steps in adhering to our financial responsibilities to the club. Please know we will be transparent and adhere to our duties as a BOD.
Kara thanks the BOD for co-chair, Sara Reid. Ninja pups have all been assigned foster homes. All pups either have transport arranged or are already with their new homes. Piper goes to her new home next week, and Ninja is with her foster home. Special thanks for help from Jo for health certificates for the pups and Ashley for information on transports for the pups. Rescue was contacted about a Beauceron mix in Iowa, but the rescue placed that dog in a foster home.
