Congratulations and welcome to all new board members! These members bring a diverse set of background experiences and leadership qualities to the KGBA, and I look forward to working with the entire board as we pursue exciting new opportunities to grow and improve.
While we are thrilled to welcome these new members to the KGBA board, the change is bittersweet, as we bid farewell to three long-time members and KGBA leaders.
Sue Huston, Ramona Birdsall and Dawn Leaming have all been on the board or years, working tirelessly for our members and our beloved goats. Dawn spreads the word about the Kinder goat at every opportunity she gets, and Sue and Ramona have worked hard to get Kinders into the show ring, and improve the breed through herd evaluations and education. Ladies – thank you so much for your hard work and dedication – the breed is better for having you in it, and we look forward to your continued involvement in it!
Thank you again to all our members for your hard work, support and participation!
