SIGRC - History
The club was founded in 1978 for the purpose of promoting
the well being of the breed in our area and sharing our
love for Goldens with other Golden Retriever owners. We
currently have a membership of about 20-25 members who
are active in many phases of dog showing, training and
breeding. We also have members who simply love Golden
Retrievers and enjoy being a part of the club. We send
out a monthly newsletter to members and interested
Some of the accomplishments of our multi-talented club
are: conformation champions, obedience, agility,
tracking, companion dogs, field, canine good citizens,
therapy dogs, and community outreach.
We also have formed a rescue initiative, named FLASH
(Finding Loving And Secure Homes).
Because we are a small club, we try to work closely with
the local Humane Societies, Animal Control and rescue
groups, as well as other Golden Retriever rescue groups,
so that we can find homes for these lovely and deserving Goldens.
Throughout the year we host and participate in different
functions as a club. We end each year with a Christmas
banquet where we present annual awards. Some past
activities have been hosting the GRCA (Golden Retriever
Club of America) Central Regional Specialty, fun
matches, visiting with rehab patients, visiting nursing
homes, club photo sessions, fun field days, club
picnics, and grooming clinics. We are an AKC affiliated
We meet the first Wednesday of each month at 6:00 P.M. However, we do occasionally hold meetings on other dates
and times. Please see the events page for more
information. If you love Golden Retrievers this is the
club for you.
