We had a nice turnout for the January meeting! To those who braved the
freezing cold weather to support the club, thank you!
Just a quick reminder that we have our March meeting on Wednesday the 4th at
7:00 pm at the Courtyard by Marriott in Westborough.
I'd also like to announce that Ann Dunn has agreed to move into the vacant
Vice President's role and Robin Todd has agreed to move into the open
Recording Secretary position. Thank you both for your service to the club!
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:
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
If you haven't been to a
CAT, there is an upcoming opportunity for you to see what the event is
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.
