Letter of Thanks from HCA

Joan Ambrose, the President of the Havanese Club of America, isn't a member of this forum, but wanted me to post this for her.

Dear Havanese Forum members;
I know words are never completely adequate but this post is being sent to all the lists I am a part of so all may know of your grand gift and celebrate with us.
The Board and I hope you will be pleased with the Award of Merit in your honor. It seemed an appropriate choice.
I look forward to seeing you at the HCA Specialty in San Mateo, August 3-8 and thanking you personally.

The Havanese Club of America has been the recipient this year of the generosity of the Havanese Forum and been given the profit from their Forum calendar: a whopping $10,000!
I am delighted and overwhelmed! On behalf of the Board I want to thank all who were involved and all those whose talents produced this wonderful calendar.
In gratitude the Havanese Club of America Board is donating one of the Awards of Merit at the National Specialty in honor of the generosity of the Havanese Forum. This will appear in the premium list and catalog for the event.
We will also thank them at the Specialty.
The HCA is proud to be chosen and very, very grateful. Joan

WoW!!!! DH must think I am crazy! I am a little teary eyed over the letter! I am so excited to have played a small part of this donation by contributing a photo and to have the calendar on my wall!

I too think all those that made this wonderful calendar a reality are the true heroes in this contribution!
