The Northern Neck Kennel Club (NNKC) is delighted to announce the successful conclusion of the Celebrate Virginia Cluster. This very popular 5-day AKC all-breed Dog Show was held this year at The Meadow Event Park in Doswell, Virginia, August 25 through 29.

Diane Trinko, NNKC President, said “I would like to congratulate the show committee on a job well done with special gratitude to show chair, Gwen Keane, and assistant show chair, Lea Bruffy, for their leadership working through the myriad details of putting on a major AKC show. Club members Catherine and Robert Bennett, Peny Gallogly, Kay Guy, and Bobbi Weeks provided invaluable hands-on support both on the committee and during the show itself. Our Club was thrilled to be able to support this exciting event showcasing top dogs from around the country.”
