It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Pilgrim Doberman Pinscher long time member, Mary Swords. Words cannot express our sorrow, or the empty hole she left for many so unexpectedly. Service information can be found:

From the President (25 OCT 2014):

At the last board meeting, Kris Sklenak appoached the board about hosting an AKC Coursing Ability Test (CAT) Trial next year. 

Kris and Robin Kelley have been actively pursuing a suitable location, necessary equipment with a person to operate it, etc., with the hope that the club can host an event in the spring.   If you haven't been to a CAT, there is an upcoming opportunity for you to see what the event is all about.

The Next CAT in this area is on 16 November in Colchester CT, hosted by the Empire Saluki Club. Come out and see! 

 I have been to one trial - and I don't think I have ever seen an event where dogs are more excited to be participating!!  It's worth the trip just to watch the dogs have so much fun!!   It's great that members are willing to work to sponsor a different type of event for our club.

 Thanks to Kris and Robin for their dedication!

It is with deep sadness that I must inform you that one of our Pilgrim members, Bobbi (Roberta) Kolsti, has passed.  Bobbi and her beloved husband, Wes, have been long-time dedicated members of the club.  Bobbi was very active in the club and served as an officer and board member.  She and Wes were ever-present at meetings and at club events - and always volunteered to serve in any way they could.  Several years ago, they moved to Maine but remained as members of the Pilgrim club they dearly loved.  

It is without doubt that she was warmly greeted by her many friends at Rainbow Bridge.

A donation was sent by the Club in Bobbi's name to DRU and a flower bouquet to Wes.

We would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Wes as well as their family and friends.  Bobbi will be missed.  Rest in peace, sweet lady.
