In Memoriam

The Nebraska Kennel Club dedicated our 2017 Conformation show to the memories of Ann and Harry Witte. Ann passed away on Sept 24th, 2016. Ann had been a tireless worker for the Nebraska Kennel Club, serving as Board Member, Secretary, Advertising Chairman, and in many other capacities. She did a lot for the Herding Community as well; Shelties were her early love but she was later taken over by Beardies. The family is suggesting that anyone wishing to honor her memory make a contribution in her name to the Bearded Collie Rescue:
