Though we'd really like to shout it from the top of the Empire State Building, we're heralding the news in this email to let you know that the Greater New York Havanese Club has been approved for the holding of licensed championship point events by the AKC! We are thrilled beyond words.

We'd like to thank Marie Fiore and Pat Ross for their hard work in stewarding the club through the licensing process. Many thanks to the membership for their steady support. We acknowledge our dear friends in the Delaware Valley Havanese Club for having the vision to start the first East Coast Havanese Club and for holding a high standard for other clubs to follow. Two of our founding members who have since passed, Clarke Ambrose and Rosalie Leone, would be so delighted to know that our club has become fully licensed. We thank the HCA for allowing us to host the NY Specialty last year under their name and will endeavor to make this year's February specialty under our very own name a wonderful event for all! Look for news of NYC events for Westminster Weekend 2010!

Most sincerely yours,

Alison Brackman
On behalf of the
Board of Directors of the
Greater New York Havanese Club

Pat Ross- Vice President
Marie Fiore - Treasurer
Ann Barbaccia - Secretary
Mary Cane - Member Representative to the Board
Maria Leone - Member Representative to the Board
Joan Ambrose - Public Education Coordinator

Congratulations! I'm sure it takes a lot of work and energy to get a club going and approved, so kudos to you all.

GNYHC AKC License !

thank you : )

it is very exciting for us all (club board and members ) to be licensed and able to offer in addition to playdates, meetings, fundraisers for rescue, non point matches, now to offer AKC point shows under our own license!
Hope to see many of you at our second GNYHC Specialty the saturday of Westminster Weekend, our first as a licensed club under our own name !

Congratulations! You all have worked so hard to get to this point. The specialty this year was great to watch. Hope the next one is even better.
