A Note from NPD Membership Chair

New-Pen-Del Newfs Club goes digital!

Welcome to the NPD Membership Portal!

A lot has changed in our Club and with our membership. Today we communicate and share our activities more on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. In order to meet this change and the need for sustainability, New-Pen-Del is looking to move our announcements and activities to an online membership portal. It will showcase our events and our members as well as enable us to market NPD products using an online payments system. This adds efficiency and will ultimately reduce costs allowing us to get information out to our membership quickly, effectively and securely. The portal will automate and simplify membership tasks for our members, volunteers, and Board.

In a few weeks, our Active members will receive an invitation to login into our secure members-only portal. Here we ask that you update your contact information, add family members, and identify what activities you would like to participate in. You will be able to automatically renew your membership at the appropriate time in September without missing the deadline. No more snail mail in submitting payments and forms. You can reach out to us through the platform if you have would like to know more about our Club and our events.

Our portal is the expression of our membership. New-Pen-Del has a long history and special people who have contributed to the growth of the Newfoundland breed and change. These are our Honorary members whose support and guidance we have depended on over the years. Peggy and Dave Helming, Diane and Tom Broderick and Betty McDonnell have helped us to evolve to where we are today. Our honorary members are important to our history and our future. 

To acknowledge the role our honorary members played in growing awareness of our Club and the Newfoundland breed, it is fitting that we begin our online membership journey by shining a spotlight on them. Over the next few weeks, we will feature each on the portal’s home page. We begin with Peggy and Dave Helming whose Josh was what drove so many of us to the Newfoundland breed including myself.

Our hope for this platform is to grow the New-Pen-Del community and generate more communication from our members. If you would like to contribute here or to any of committees, please feel free to reach out to me at

We look forward to hearing more from all of you!

    Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic Amy Supko, Working Dog Chair and I decided to cancel the Draft Test this year. We want to thank all who worked many hours on organizing the test. 

    If there are any questions, please contact me.

    I would like to update the membership on the NPD Awards Dinner and why it was canceled. After listening to the increasing reports from medical advisors who were recommending the importance of social distancing Thursday evening and Friday morning the decision was made to cancel the NPD Awards Dinner. 

    This decision was very difficult. I want to thank Chris LaMuraglia, Diane Broderick, Euny Warren, Jody Porrazzo, Shellie Vanderbeck, and Ana Peraza who donated many hours organizing and putting together a wonderful awards dinner only to be canceled. 

     As disheartening as this decision was it was the correct decision. Additional information will follow regarding the Awards and Raffle Items.

    Our dogs were groomed, van packed when Diane and I Friday morning decided not to attend the show. 

    Chris LaMuraglia had the trophies taken to York. I want to thank Nancy Weaver and all who helped to give out the trophies. 

    Congratulations to the winners. Be safe and well.

Since that time, they have bred and/or owned approximately 300 champions, many of whom are National Specialty, Working Group and Best in Show winners. Ch.
