St Augustine Parade

24th Annual Newfoundland Club of Florida Celebration Weekend

You and your Newfoundland Dogs are cordially invited to attend the 24rd Annual
Newfoundland Club of Florida Celebration Weekend
Featuring the 63nd Annual St. Augustine Christmas Parade
December 1st -2nd, 2017.

The Newfoundland Club of Florida has planned a wonderful Newfie Weekend you will not want to miss!
Join us in Historic St. Augustine as we celebrate the Newfoundland Breed and raise funds for the Newf-FLA club and rescue program.

All of the details and registration information will be posted as we get closer to the date, a number of things need to be finalized. Please do not delay in making your reservations.

This year’s activities will include a Friday night General Membership Meeting and Pizza Party, participation in the famous St. Augustine Christmas Parade, a special blessing and remembrance ceremony with lunch in the park, a brown bag raffle, a fine arts auction in conjunction with a fabulous wine and cheese party!

The hotel has changed from previous years, The Days Inn has changed from a large dog friendly hotel to something else.
I'm hoping that the new accommodations will meet everyone’s approval.

New Host Hotel and Newfie Headquarters: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Magnuson Hotel Historic St. Augustine located just West of where we have stayed in the past.

The Address is:
1111 N Ponce de Leon Blvd, St Augustine, FL 32084
Phone for reservations: 904-824-5554 to book direct


Please identify yourself as with the Newfoundland Club of Florida and make your reservations early. Try to get a ground floor room, it makes everything easier.

We recommend that you make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. There are very few hotels in the area which accept large dogs, so if you miss getting into the host hotel, you may have difficulty finding room close by.

The grooming seminar that we had scheduled for last year was cancelled due to the hurricane that skirted along the East coast before finally hitting NE Florida.
There have been numerous questions about when we were going to do the grooming seminar and after checking availability October 7th is the day.

There are numerous dog friendly hotels in the area.

This is a heads up to let you mark your calendars. Registration forms will be posted soon,
More details to follow.

Title Recognition
NEWFFLA is proud to bring back recognition for newfoundlands who have earned titles throughout the year in the way of certificates. These will be given out at the Friday night meeting at the St Augustine Christmas parade.

Any newfoundland who has earned a title throughout the year, in any AKC, NCA, Agility ( AKC, USDAA, NADAC), and Therapy ( AKC, TDI, Pet Partners, Delta) is eligible.

Also any newfoundland who achieves VN (versatile newfoundland) title or receives their WA (working achievement) title will also be eligible.

The cut off date for acquiring new titles will be Oct 31st. So any new title up until Oct 31st of this year is eligible. For next year this will be Nov 1st of this year through Oct 31st of next year.

Copies of all certificates and information should be sent to:
Heidi Peterson
965 Trinidad Road
Cocoa Beach, FL 32931

Or emailed to Heidi965@aol.com

All information should be received by Nov 15th in order to allow time for printing the certificates.
Information should include:

We hope that this will inspire many of you to get out there and work with your newfs. This is a breed that was bred to work, and the time and energy put into it will bring you a greater bond and relationship with your dog.
