Unfortunately, we did not get many photos of our 2016 and 2017 Events, even though we participated in all of the same events as in prior years (with the exception of the Pet Expo which was taken over by another firm in 2017 and the event changed to a Dogs Welcome format and Meet The Parades was replaced by an informal Parade of Breeds).

Posted by Heidi Clark on the AKC website on November 2, 2015: Last weekend the South Windsor Kennel Club, Farmington Valley Kennel Club, and Windham County Kennel Club hosted the morning hospitality and lunch for all the participants of the Meet the Breeds. Members from almost all of the area clubs participated in the Connecticut Pet Expo & Meet the Breeds event in Hartford, Connecticut. This event was put on by the Connecticut Federation of Dog Clubs and Responsible Dog Owners, Inc. and their member AKC Kennel Clubs, the weekend was packed with events. On Saturday Oct. 24, Windham County Kennel Club's Ed Lyons headed presentations by the the Toy, Hound, Working, and Herding groups from noon to 3 p.m., while Dr. Tom Davies headed presentations by the Terrier, Sporting, and Non-Sporting groups on Oct. 25. This successful two-day event broke an attendance record and was a great way for the clubs to mingle with the general public and educate attendees on the purebred dog. [Ed. Note: the event was also sponsored by the Massachusetts Federation of Dog Clubs, Inc.]
