Join us at Johnny and Bobbi Schaad’s home on Monday, July 25th at 5:30 pm to meet Search and Rescue K-9s Reign, Sabre, and Sultan (K-9 S&R puppy in training) along with their handlers, Roy and Suzy Ferguson. Roy and Suzy will share some of their search and rescue stories.
Roy is an optician / educator by trade and previously owned 20/20 Optical in Sevierville. Currently he is on the National Optical Board and develops Continuing Education classes for opticians along with a textbook for opticians which is being used nationwide in optical schools. Suzie is retired from the medical field as a business manager, and is pursuing her stained glass art and painting.
Roy and Suzie became involved with Search and Rescue in 2003 while looking for a job for their “career changed” Leader Dog puppy Cherokee. They currently partner with Sabre and Reign in human remains detection and have puppy Sultan in training for area search for lost people. The team is non-profit and self-funded. The Tennessee Special Response Team-A does not charge for search services.
Club members will bring fixings for a Taco Bar and Johnny and Bobbi will have their pool open for anyone wishing to swim.
Rotarians are encouraged to invite their family and friends to join us for the evening. Please text your RSVP to K.C. at 865-599-9260.
