The 2013 Specialty Committee is planning a commemorative booklet of advertising which will be separate from the Specialty catalog. The catalog will have only commercial ads, e.g., grooming equipment, etc. The commemorative booklet with contain only OES breed pages of past, present and future "stars" of our breed. The booklet will be printed in color and will be similar to the advertising section of our Centennial catalog. The booklet will accompany the catalog but will also be available for separate purchase. The cost of a color page (5 l/2 x 8 - catalog size ) will be $50.
We hope you will consider commemorating your past, present, and/or future "stars" in what will hopefully be a breed "keepsake." The deadline for ad submission is August l, 2013. The booklet will be edited by Amy Howard and printed by our TIMES printer, Jeff Trombo. Amy has done two yearbooks, the 120 plus pages of advertising in our centennial catalog as well as the TIMES for the past 6 years and will be happy to help design your ad if needed. The Specialty Committee welcomes and invites all members to participate. We all have/had a dog(s) we want to honor with a photo and write-up.
