The Collie Club of America’s 125th Anniversary Gala is bearing down on us like a
powerful locomotive and will be here before we know it. The Collie Health
Foundation also celebrates their Silver Anniversary milestone at this event, having
fledged its chicks at the Collie Club of America’s Centennial event in Chicago in
1986. Thanks to the generosity of John and Evelyn Honig, Rick and Hilda
Rickenbaugh, Jane Youngjohns and Hazel Ward, and Richard Norstrom, the first
charter memberships sold at auction generated $7,000 in seed money. By the end
of the year, the Foundation had raised almost $25,000.
That year the Foundation awarded its first two grants - $1,500 to Dr. William P.
Hammond and Dr. David C. Dale of the University of Washington in support of
an ongoing Gray Collie project; an additional $500 went to Janet N. Holbrook to
develop an audiovisual guide for training Collies.
In the 25 years of the Foundation’s existence, over a million dollars has been
raised, with nearly a million spent in support of a variety of institutional projects
designed to improve Collie health and give breeders tools to produce healthier,
longer-lived Collies that continue to enrich the lives of those of us who adore
them. Thanks to the efforts and dedication of many volunteers whose talents
have contributed to the groundwork of the Foundation, your current board was
handed a rock to build upon, and build upon it, they have.
In that quarter century since 1986, your contributions to the CHF have supported
the discovery of DNA tests for the MDR-1 gene, Collie Eye Anomaly, Progressive
Retinal Atrophy, and Gray Collie Syndrome. In the next quarter century, we hope
to be able to report progress against bloat, epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, and
cancer, which is being reported more often recently. In pursuit of our educational
goals, we’ve funded thousands of educational club seminars, and created the
milestone Gathering at Sunnybank in the summer.
The CHF Committee Chairs are planning exciting commemorative activities for
the National specialty this year - be sure to check out the website and our booth at
the national to see what they’ve come up with! Volunteers will be there – be sure
to introduce yourself and tell us about your Collies!

COLLIES, CITIZENS OF THE WORLD
From Lad to Lassie
Collies are known all around the world through books, movies, and television.
Their sweet, protective, gentle, and courageous nature is easily recognized by millions across the
globe. “Lassie” is universal in every language.
While The Gathering at Sunnybank will always pay homage to “LAD” and all the magnificent
collies of the famed Terhune era, this year we celebrate collies of every name. So, come on all
you closet Lassie fans, this is your year! Come join us as we once again have the opportunity to
celebrate our special dogs as “Citizens of the World”.
