With a record entry to date of 29 Leos entered in our 2nd Regional Specialty, the LCO welcomed exhibitors and Leo lovers from across Ontario and many exhibitors making the journey from South of the border. To all of our friends and those from the US who supported our shows, we thank you. Special mention to Morgan & Michael Avila (Lynbrook, New York), Nadine Love-Filer (Burlington, Wisconsin), Luanne Moede & Hannah Janke (Wausau, Wisconsin) and Amanda Shea (Ware, Maryland).

Thank you Iivi Sillaste for organizing a great menu including sandwiches, salads, fruit platter and deserts prepared by European Meats & Deli. If you went away hungry, it was your own fault…
For those who donated items to the Silent Auction, your generosity was greatly appreciated. We had many wonderful items to select from. As always, a portion of the proceeds from the Silent Auction go towards helping Leos in need through Leo Rescue Canada.
Special thank you to Elizabeth Pierce who handmade and donated a fabulous Leo hair pillow for the cause. The entire amount of the winning bid for the pillow is going to Leo Rescue Canada.
Also thank you to Luanne Moede who provided the candid photos for the LCO’s Booster and Specialty.
