The Committee is very sad to report the passing of Eileen Speich our Club President, on the 24th May 2016 peacefully at her home in Scotland, with her family and her beloved dog Sunny by her side, Eileen Beryl Speich nee Seager. Beloved wife of the late John and a loved mother of Gerald, Karen, Kevin & Andrew.
Eileen will never be forgotten by the club. She gave over 35 years as Secretary, Chairman, Treasurer and finally our President, sometimes holding more than one role at once.
We have introduced the Glarus memorial stakes class in her honour. Eileen wanted this class as a lasting tribute to the Glarus line, with proceeds each year to go to a different medical detection dog charity. This year 2016, the proceeds of the class will be going to the Alexandra unit at the Dumfries Royal Infirmary who looked after her in the final months of her life.
