QVK9 Board

QVK9 Board

The QVK9 Board is a group of volunteers who help to coordinate social events for our members and management of the dog run at Mario Lanza Park.

We are always looking for new board members or volunteers to help coordinate events, engage members, and raise funds.

We are a social group that gets together once a month for some snacks and beverages while discussing canine initiatives.  If you’re interested in joining the board, or volunteering at some of our events, please let us know!
