Chattanooga Kennel Club prepares to help in a disaster
Hello Club members and DART volunteers,
Check your calendars!
Another Sequoyah Nuclear Power Plant drill is coming up June 27th at 8:30 AM and
June 28th at 12:30 PM at Ocoee Middle school in Cleveland.
The CAMET will be on site and we need volunteers to set up for the incoming animals.
The 27th will be set up and practice, the 28th will be the actual disaster simulation
graded by FEMA [serious stuff].
Jeff Gunter from Bradley Co. EMA will hold a class for us on what will be involved
with the drill. The last one I attended was very informative. If you are not able to
help at the drill you still won't want to miss the class. Date and time TBA.
If you can do any of the following; Help set up crates, or fill in the paper work for
incoming dogs, or take a photo, or put an ID collar on a dog, or walk a dog, or fill a
water bowl, etc. etc. WE NEED YOU!!
This will also be great publicity for our club. It lets people in our communities know
the variety of services our club is involved in. The exercise can likely be featured on
AKC's website as well as our local newspaper.
Please email me if you can help in any way.

Many thanks to Guy and Nancy Pearl for hosting our annual picnic! The hospitality was beyond description, the setting was lovely and the food—why it was great as usual thanks to Nancy and the club members who are all incredible cooks. I have included a recipe for an annual treat from Jan Cutting. Each year she brings this incredible cake. Enjoy!
JAN CUTTING’S PINEAPPLE CAKE
2 C Flour
2 t Baking Soda
1 t Vanilla
1 C walnuts Chopped
1 Can Crushed Pineapple (do not drain)
Mix in one bowl, pour into 9 x 12 greased and floured pan. Bake
at 350 for 40 min. (Or until tooth pick comes out clean)
Cover with below: (I usually double this recipe)
1 8oz PK of Creamed Cheese
1 stick of Oleo
1 3/4 C of powdered sugar.
1 t Vanilla.
It is better if frosting is put on when cake is slightly warm.
