He is a commercial pilot with single-engine land and sea, multi-engine land, certified flight instructor with instrument, multi-engine flight instructor and remote airman ratings.

“Every time I teach a student to fly, I look back and relive those memories. It’s a huge change in someone’s life,” Young said. “I am excited to join the Aerospace Center for Excellence because its programs and scholarships change the lives of 30,000 students a year by engaging them to all the aerospace career possibilities they can pursue as well as preserving the legacy of aviation”.

Strawberry Cluster Dog Show

 

 

February 15th – 18th, 2019

 

Event Details

Adult Admission: Free Admission
Gate Times: 8 a.m. to late afternoon
Parking: $5

Address:
SUN ‘n FUN Expo Campus
4175 Medulla Road
Lakeland, FL 33811

If you like dogs, and who doesn’t, you can see some of the cream of the crop at The Strawberry Cluster dog show Feb. 16 to Feb. 19 in Lakeland. There will be four days of conformation and obedience competition indoors at SUN ‘n FUN. Conformation is where dogs run around a ring and stand for the judges who compare each dog to the breed standard – how close to perfect. Obedience is how well a dog does what it is told. This is the 39th annual show put on by the Lakeland Winter Haven Kennel Club and, this year, the local club is joined by Fort Myers Dog Club. If there is a breed you are interested in, and there are more than 180 in the American Kennel Club, chances are you can get up close to one in the grooming area. Watch handlers and groomers buff and fluff Fifi so she looks just like you see on TV. The Great Danes really are that big, the Bouvier des Flanders really do have beards that long, and Yorkies really are that tiny. Admission is free. Parking is $5 a car for as many people as you can stuff in. Vendors will have toys and hand-made in the USA clothes for tiny dogs, treats and leashes, and beds and baths. Judging starts at 8 a.m. and Best in Show is late afternoon each day. Best of the Cluster will be chosen Monday afternoon. There will be a food court. Everything you need to know: What: Strawberry Cluster Dog Show By Lakeland Winter Haven Kennel Club and Fort Myers Dog Club Where: SUN ‘n FUN, 4175 Medulla Road, Lakeland, FL. 33811 When: Feb 17 through 20, 8 a.m. to late afternoon Price: Free. Parking is $5.
