New for the club, show sponsorship. More information will come, every member will be able to help with this one!
Thank you,
Ann Bowie

Your CDCTA Board, in an effort to provide a wider variety of Educational, fun opportunities for members has decided to ask for sponsors for our three schooling shows. By making a small donation, sponsors will get their names and/or ads on our sponsor page. They will also get our thanks, as they support our ribbons, prizes and more activities. Members are asked to support a
class, or two, and also approach their “horsey” and “non-horsey” contacts for donations. Folks can get together and pool their donations, a farm can sponsor a class, a donation can be made “in memory of” or “in support of”, please be creative and help us support you, or members as we try to grow this organization.
Thank you for your help and support.

Volunteers are not paid – not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless!
