Norwegian Elkhound Club of the Potomac Valley


Hello NECPV Members,

As another year is ending, I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.  We will be having our annual NECPV holiday party January 21, 2018, at Mama Stella’s in Clinton MD.  Hope to see everyone there to show their support for the NECPV club.  There will be a raffle for a beautiful Elkhound pendent for $5.00 dollars a ticket.  In addition, January 13, 2018, after the Fredericksburg show with Pat Trotter, she will be joining our club at Brocks Grill.  Please contact Nancy Tyler for details and reservations.  It is very important we make a good showing at this event.  As for those that do not know who Pat is, she has been showing and judging Elkhounds for many years and this would be a great opportunity to learn about our breed.

I would like to give thoughts and prayers to Fred Bishop as he recovers from an illness.  He has done so much for this club along with Teena Bishop.  So please keep them in your prayers.  Last I heard he is doing a little bit better so we hope to see him at the Christmas party.

Please remember if you have not paid your dues, you can do this at the party or the dinner in January and of course via mail.

There will be a member meeting at the Holiday party, January 21, 2018.

On a finial note, I would like to thank the new Board members, which you helped elect in September.  Tina Bishop, Vice President, Betsy Flagg, Treasurer, Belinda Moore, Hospitality, Gail DeBell, Membership, Dee Roberts, Secretary, Pat Jarvis, Rescue and Melanie Seals, Programs and of course Chris DeBell as your President.

Please feel free to contact us anytime for any reason, as we always are here to help you with any questions or situations you might have.


Hope to see all at the Holiday Party.


Chris DeBell, President
