It’s a bit unusual for a club to dedicate its show to the Specialty Judge. For today’s show, circumstances make it almost mandatory. The Michigan Boxer Club dedicates this show to “Mr. Michigan Boxer Club“, John Connolly.
After what seems like a lifetime of service and dedication to this Club, John has moved on with his new bride, Marlene, to Spokane, Washington. To say he will be greatly missed is an understatement of enormous proportions.
Through the years, John has guided, tutored, prodded, and demanded that the Club move forward to provide excellence in the shows it stages and the services it provides to its members. He has provided the Club a framework in which excellence can be maintained and enhanced.
From MBC, as well as his many friends throughout the Boxer world, we extend our most heartfelt wishes to John and Marlene for many years of happiness and good health. While home is now Spokane, for both John and Marlene, a second home will always be here in Michigan. Good luck and God bless.
