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.

That is so terrific! I echo the thanks for the beautiful calendar because I get so much enjoyment out of it everyday of the week. Thanks one more time Ryan and all who helped by submitting pictures, organizing, printing, distributing, etc. I LOVE mine!
It's so nice that the HCA recognized the efforts in a formal and public way. I can't believe it's the one year I didn't attend! I wish you Ryan and your cohorts could have been there too. Next year!

What a nice thing for them to do! Ryan you certainly deserve the cudos for so much work and such a beautiful product. I am sorry I missed that dinner and presentation.

I for one think that the cup should go to Ryan for all his efforts.

Of course it should. Yes, the Havanese Forum was recognized as a collective because the funds were given in that name, but Ryan was the coordinator and manager of the whole project. I've even made sure the bag is staying over it so the pewter doesn't get all fingerprinted and messed up before he gets it.

I love my calendar too. I'm packing to move and made sure to pack it in one of the boxes that will be unpacked first! Don't want to be without it for too long! Thanks to everyone, especially Ryan and all those HCA members who support healthy Havs.
