Congratulations Sally Fionte, Susque-Nango Kennel Club’s Lifetime Membership!

Sally has been a member of Susque-Nango Kennel Club since the late 80’s. She served on the Board and was Trophy chair for many point shows. She also served on the Show committee in various positions for many shows. Sally was the Director of Humane Society, BOCES Adult Education Courses Mentor, AKC conformation, and an Instructor of Show Handling Classes for SNKC. SNKC used to hold our Mother’s day match on BOCES property with students helping out. I believe Sally was responsible for that support. Sally was a Therapy Dogs International, Inc., Evaluator. She organized frequent visits to the community and area nursing homes, and tested dogs for membership for several years. Sally was/is a member of the Broome County group which organizes and conducts rabies clinics.
