There are several members of Sun Maid Kennel Club who have given length of service in the Club with dedicated hours to volunteer without accepting any fanfare.
One of our members fits that profile, for a valued candidate to receive this years' AKC Sportsmanship Award.
The nomination for Belinda Brier is fitting as she embodies so many of the virtues that contributes to a good sportsman.
Since her initial membership to Sun Maid Kennel Club in 2001, she has accepted responsibility on being a valued Board Member for numerous terms. During her time on the Board, she has exhibited leadership as President and numerous terms as Vice President.
Belinda also has worked, since her membership in 2001, to assist in many areas of putting on a successful dog show. Some of these responsibilities include being the originator of our much successful raffle which she has chaired for over a decade. She also is in charge of the general parking and show security. A great responsibility for the smooth running of our shows. Belinda has also been Chairman of the Nominating Committee as well as the Club's Budget Committee.
For the past several years she has generously donated to the Trophy Fund.
Belinda can always be counted on to get a job done with her positive and fun personality.
Therefore, it is a pleasure to nominate Belinda for the 2019-2020 AKC Sportsmanship Award as the Sun Maid Kennel Club values all she has done.
