Shiloh Shepherd History Preservation Project
The SSDCA, Inc. was incorporated in July 1991. The announcement of the
club's formation was mailed out in the Shiloh Shepherd Kennels
summer newsletter along with a membership application form. The fall 91
Shiloh Shepherd Kennels newsletter announced that henceforth there
would be no further Shiloh Shepherd Kennels newsletters; in its lieu
would be Shiloh Shepherd Dog Club of America, Inc. newsletters.
Aside from other informative mailings that went out to all club members, 3
editions of the newsletter were published yearly from that point on. Now we
would like to share pictures of those early newsletters along with some
highlights from each.
From 1991 to 1997 14
editions were mailed out by the SSDCA.
As of 9/97 the SSDCA agreed to
step aside for one year and allow the ISSDC (a new club formed by the then
vice president of the SSDCA) to take over full club activities as the parent
club for the ISSR. At the end of that time, if the members were
agreeable, the SSDCA would disappear and the ISSDC would be the parent club.
The agreement was broken however when the ISSDC announced the formation of
their own new "registry" in January 1998. The SSDCA was immediately revived
and by the spring/summer of 1998 had mailed out their double edition
March/July '98 newsletter and continued to issue 3 newsletters yearly with
the exception of 2000 when only 2 were issued due to Tina's fire. Since that
time the SSDCA has continued to grow every year with more members now than
every before! The ISSDC was soon rent by turmoil and was disbanded in 2001;
it's "registry" split into 4 groups run by individual ever changing small
coalitions of breeders. For further details, please review the
History of the Club Split and
the Shiloh Shepherd history
Our next edition will be
coming out in Spring 2004--don't miss out on our full color online issues.
