This year’s banquet and silent auction once again was a big success and also honored Betty Crawford for her 50+ years of devotion to the Irish Setter. Betty recently turned 90 years old and is still quite a feisty lady; several members who have recently been to see her can attest to this fact. She enjoys visits so anyone who can, should consider stopping by to see her. If you can't visit, she thoroughly loves and enjoys receiving cards. Her address is: Betty Crawford, Briarfield at Ashley Circle, 5291 Ashley Circle, Room 111, Austintown, OH 44515
The money from the silent auction was raised for the ISCO rescue fund. Thanks to Pat Jesson on running the auction. Also thanks to Donna Turchanik for a beautiful display of pewter awards. Congratulations to all the winners, of both the annual awards and the title completion plates. Full details will be listed in the March 2009 Newsletter. We could not have had such a nice event without all the help!
