HCA President awards the Havanese Forum
Each year during the Havanese Club of America (HCA) Awards Banquet which is held at the end of the Havanese National Specialty, the president has the option of giving out several awards of his/her own choice. This year, our president Joan Ambrose, opted to give out a few President Awards and one included the Havanese Forum for the $10,000 donation to the Havanese Club of America for the calendar sales.
She gave a handwritten note saying thank you to the Havanese Forum from Joan Ambrose and a small pewter cup. (I will scan the letter, but my scanner quit on me this week, so it may take a wee bit to add it to this topic.) Someone took a group picture that shows the cup in hand too, so hopefully that will be posted.
I accepted the award on behalf of the forum, but for all his effort in coordinating the 2010 calendar, the credit truly goes to Ryan Faust and his team.
Ryan, in addition to Joan's thanks, I want to add a thank you for the beautiful calendar that so many of us have been able to enjoy. The solicitation of the images, sorting for workable options, and organizing them was a major feat. Then, to coordinate the distribution, including sending cases to our national specialty last year for sales, and collecting all the funds was a huge task. We sure appreciate the end result in our homes and offices! Thank you for all of the details you managed along with your team. Your gift of the calendars is so appreciated. The gift to our national club of the $10,000 is even more appreciated. The club will be using those funds to benefit the breed in regard to health research.

Reason: to clarify I will scan the letter, not the cup. Ha!
