  6. GPCSO Garage Sale – Mississauga June 13, 2009 - Whenever the end of spring nears and most of your spring cleaning has been completed, there are usually lots of things that you would like to get rid of. Well here is an opportunity for you… A Giant Garage Sale!! The date is June 13 (just a week before summer) located at Sandra Young’s, 983 Wales Avenue in Mississauga.

    Of course the Great Pyrenees Club of Southern Ontario is the beneficiary. So how can you help? There are two ways… 1) Club Members can donate good quality saleable items, which can be dropped off at Sandra’s home or given to her at the Spring Walk. 2) Club Members can participate in the Sale, set up a table with stuff you no longer need and join in the fun. In return, all we ask is that you donate 25% of your proceeds to the Club.

    What a deal! You win, the dogs win and the Club wins… and you may even be able to use that corner of your garage again that you had filled with junk (Ahemm...TREASURES) for the past dozen years.

    It has come. It has gone. And the garage is empty. Need we say more?

  7. 2009 AGM - Yes folks, it's that time of year again! Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2009, at Mohawk Park, Brantford, Ontario starting at 11:00 a.m. We will be in Shelter E, which is right by a parking lot.

    Mohawk Park is a lovely setting, complete with gorgeous mature trees providing lots of shade for our Pets. Following the meeting, there will a POT LUCK LUNCH and then a Dog Walk with our pets.

    As this park is well attended by local residents, be prepared to answer lots of questions about our Breed. As always, such a large herd of our magnificent dogs will attract lots of attention.

    Our AGM is being held during Responsible Dog Ownership Week sponsored by the Canadian Kennel Club, which focuses on letting the public know about breeds and dog ownership. I am sure that our presence will be a great representative of what it means to own and care for dogs.

    It was great seeing you at the park!
