Narooma Dog Training Club (NDTC) president, Steve Genner said he wanted to say a big thank you to all the 2020 handlers and supporters in this challenging year.
"We are very fortunate to have a strong community of dog lovers who appreciate the work that we do and who show their support in many ways. Did you know that NDTC Instructors are all volunteers?
"Without their weekly commitment, there would be no dog training programs. We applaud your dedication and willingness to adapt to constantly changing circumstances this year.
"Special mention needs to be made of the many private donors who contribute beautiful and delicious home made goodies for sale at the Dalmeny Markets.
"Yve Robinson is the driving force behind our market stall, assisted by Carol Hellmers, Graham Pinney and Jo Barrett.
"Thanks also to Rosy Williams for her fabulous photos; to staff at Eurobodalla Shire Council Booking Office and at the Narooma Depot for their help with Nata Oval; and to Kerrie O'Connor and team at Regional Publishers for publishing our articles and those of the AWL Eurobodalla Branch.
"Lastly, to the many dog owners who registered with us this year, thank you for your demonstration of confidence in our programs. Everyone involved 'rolled with the many punches' thrown at us in 2020.
"Even on our last fun day of training and presentations we were buffeted by gale force winds. Despite the challenges, we hope you enjoyed your training with us and that you will return for more in 2021," he said.
"Best wishes to everyone for a Happy Christmas and New Year. Take care of yourselves and your pets, especially in this hot Summer weather."
