Community Service Project

The Collie Club of America would like to say thank you to Peoria for hosting our 2019 National.  As our 2019 National Specialty Community Service Project, we have chosen the Dream Center Peoria, Basic Human Needs Program which encompasses The Shelter, The Village and The HOPE Store. Dream Center Peoria is a faith-based not-for-profit organization whose mission is to impact individuals and families in poverty, starting with kids and youth.

Please help us support their program by bringing your donations to the 2019 National. Items will be collected at both the Campton Hills and Peoria show sites. Items they can use are: Newfull-size shampoo, deodorant, body wash, toothpaste, shaving supplies, diapers, and feminine hygiene products. Monetary donations are also welcome, with checks made out to Dream Center Peoria.

Grooming Area Decorating Contest

Give us your best interpretation of our theme, Spirit of the Heartland. Areas will be judged on originality and creativity. Winner to be announced, and award presented, on Wednesday just prior to the Top Ten Invitational.


State Baskets

Each state and nation has unique and wonderful characteristics. Each Collie club has a personality of its own. It is fun to show these off by offering a basket for our silent auction showcasing what makes your state, nation or club special! And of course, there are the bragging rights for the basket that garners the highest bid! We ask that nothing be perishable and that you provide a list of the contents for prospective bidders. Baskets will be on display all week for bidding and the winners announced Saturday morning, March 30. 50% of the proceeds from the silent auction will go to support the show and 50% will be donated.
