PSDC members are very generous!  Club Treasurer Jessica Keiner-Borman presented a check for almost $1300 to members Lynda Ninos and Ed Scheckner at the Saturday night dinner during the annual summer campout.

The club established a “go fund me” site shortly after a lightning strike on June 13th started a fire which destroyed the kennel building owned by Ninos and Scheckner is Kirkwood, PA.  The building housed their Malamutes, Labs, mushing gear, appliances and work tools.

Fortunately, Scheckner was home when the fire started and was able to save all the dogs. The fire department put out the flames before the mushing gear was lost, but other appliances and tools were lost. The building itself was a total loss.

The “go fund me” site was publicized on the PA Sled Dog Club’s website, on the club’s FaceBook page and in the club newsletter. Club members started donating right away and continued donating until after the summer campout.  Hopefully these donations will help Ninos & Scheckner replace some lost items.
