  • It’s time for NATIONALS!! I hope everyone has been keeping up with the updates on the 2024 HLRSC Nationals page. Our Texas team has done an AMAZING job at preparing to bring you the best show the south has seen. The awards are INCREDIBLE. I even entered two in the fur class - I have NEVER entered fur before - good luck to everyone attending and I pray everyone arrives safe and back home safe - see everyone soon!

 

  • Banquet auction donations - if you plan on attending the banquet at nationals please consider bringing an item or basket to be auctioned off - money raised from our banquet auctions is for the HLRSC awards budget - this is the biggest reason you see so many nice awards given out at convention and national shows

 

  • Hollanders are arriving in our boxes now, if you haven’t received yours yet you will soon - there is so much I love about the new touches Jeremy added but my favorite is each Zone Director’s report is followed by the same Zone Youth Director’s report. I love this because I really want each zone’s open and youth directors working together. I feel they can be a huge support to each other. Thank you Jeremy!

As always feel free to reach out to your zone Directors or Board with any questions or concerns!

December 2023

  • This month I want to start with a big thank you to Julie Kilmer - she has been an awesome editor for our Hollander.  I am very sad that she has to step down but she has a great reason. Their family is growing and will be welcoming a new lil holland exhibitor soon!  While I am sad for my own selfish reasons, and I hate to see her go, I am very excited for the Kilmer's and all of us are sending a huge congratulations along with many prayers for an easy healthy delivery.

 

  • After board approval I am proud to announce that our new editor will be Jeremy Collins.  Jeremy is also the current editor of the Dwarf Digest so a lot of us already know he does an amazing job.

  • The next Hollander should be in the mail soon - look for an important announcement about our first online vote for updating our CB&L.

  • We have a new webmaster!  The Board has approved Holly Wrege.  Holly also comes to us with experience from working with other clubs and multiple years of experience building and managing websites.  Holly is in the process of getting familiar with our website and the plans are for her to take over January 1st.

  • We have a new zone 4 youth director.  A big welcome to miss Bella Horton from Arkansas.

  • The online store is still in the process of being set up by the company - we hope to have some really cool zone shirts available when it goes live!

  • We want to offer support and recognition to our overseas breeders! Cody Taylor will be our “Overseas Recognition Contact” watch for his report of ideas and goals in our next Hollander

  • Our main goal the past couple of weeks has been the Constitution and By-Laws .  Initial review of Constitution and By-Laws is done - suggestions were sent to our Constitution and By-Laws committee and now has been sent to our Board of Directors, next our members will be voting - a special announcement will be in our next Hollander

  • We are getting close to finalizing details for our online store and hope that it is ready even before our next update!

  • Amanda Robinson has decided that continuing as our merchandise chair is just too much right now. She had been a huge blessing to our club and I thank her for everything she has done for us. I am thankful that a she is not going anywhere and is still available to help and guide us as needed.

I would like to welcome Becky Marlow as our new supply chair. Becky lives in Missouri with her family. She has dedicated many hours to our breed, supporting youth, organizing and helping host area shows, including the Missouri state convention.

October 2023  ~ Cindi Hinton

Some exciting things a happening in our club - I plan to post updates periodically in an effort to keep our members updated on our progress

 

Here are some things we have working on now:

  • you wanted to see your sweepstakes points more often!?!? We are now updating the sweeps on our website more often! We are shooting for having a screenshot posted at least every month and maybe more often - but to be very clear these are just what has been entered as of the date of the screenshot

Cheri goes through mounds of show reports so standings can change daily/weekly/monthly/quarterly

We have taken the sweeps out of our Hollander except for our final year end results

  • Next year’s convention committee has been selected and will be working hard to prepare for the 101st ARBA Convention in Louisville

  • very soon we hope to have an updated store on our HLRSC . org website. My hope is to make our store THE GO TO PLACE for anything and everything Holland - stay tuned!!

  • the board has just started the process of doing a thorough review of our constitution and bylaws to bring everything up to date

  • many have asked for a logo update - we did have some submissions but the board had to put it aside for just a bit because of convention, new officers coming in and there are some things that had to take priority and get updated so we can move forward. The logo will be revisited again once our club’s documents are all brought up to date

Always feel free to reach out to your Directors or Board with any questions or concerns!
