Sadly, today (April 9th) we learned that Alma McLean passed away this morning at 9:16 a.m.   Alma was a long time member of NEMKC and served in many capacities over the years.  Alma is most known as our Club's historian and photographer. Alma had been battling breast cancer for a long time and had her membership lapse a couple years ago. She had fought a good fight but in the end the cancer won.  Alma had been in hospice at Gilchrist Center since last Tuesday.  She was comfortable and not in any discomfort when she died.  She just slipped away as she would have wanted.
There will be a notice in the Baltimore Sun and more information will soon be available on the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Funeral Home site  According to Alma's wishes, she will be cremated.
We will post information on our Club website as it becomes available.

NEMKC's July All Breed Show will be dedicated to the memory of Ed Keyser.  Sadly Ed passed away on January 1, 2017.  Ed and his wife were instrumental in the early growth and development of our club.  Thank you Ed for all you did for NEMKC.  You will be missed.


Please note that there are two changes to our NEMKC Board of Directors.  Unfortunately Pat Testerman and Diane Edwards' work schedules do not permit them to continue as directors on our board.  The board vote to replace Pat and Diane with Ann Schultz and Nita Snyder.   Thank you!

Members - Gina, Executive Director of Pets on Wheels will our program on April 4th.   See you then..... JOIN US!
