Also I would like to let people know that we have been doing some spring cleaning to the website this week.  We have fixed some links and added our photos back onto the website in the photo gallery section.  I would like to get more pictures up on the site of society meetings and other activities so if you have any pictures like that please email them to website@starkcountyogs.org and make sure to let me know where and when they were taken and we will try to get them up on the website as soon as we can.

P.S. For those emailing photos please try to limit the amount of photos per email to 10 or less to ensure that the email doesn’t get too large to send.  If you have more than 10 you can send multiple emails to get them all.  Thanks.
