Attention DGOTC members: membership renewal for 2006 is now due!!

If you have not yet renewed your DGOTC membership, please do so as soon as possible. The deadline is February 28, after which renewals are no longer accepted. At that point, you would need to reapply for membership — what a drag that would be! Don’t lose out on the benefits that come with membership: free classes, participation in our doggy events and great friendships! Send the renewal form and your check (normal membership is only $35) to: Maggie Komosinski, 4443 Chase Park Court, Annandale VA 22003. Call Maggie if you have any questions (703-941-1332).
