Our Crown Classic Dog Shows in conjunction with Richland County Kennel Club was held at Cleveland's IX Center. It was a wonderful event made possible by the extraordinary efforts of members of WRKC and RCKC clubs. Our club member, Byron Gray, did an outstanding rendition singing our National Anthem a cappella. We want to give a special SHOUT OUT to Ron Caffo and Ron's cat for his help. Thanks to our exhibitors, judges, superintendent, and a bevy of great vendors. We want to thank the IX personnel including Bill, for their behind the scenes efforts to make this show happen.
