Notes from the Board (February)

So I have officially jumped in with two feet!! I have to start with a big thank you for the wonderful turnout at the luncheon. You all made me feel comfortable and welcome. That was greatly appreciated.

Now down to business, horse show committee is going full steam ahead, working on details to make the show running business as easy and can be. We still need your help! Feel free to contact me with whatever you can offer.

Fundraiser, as you know the idea of a raffle is getting bounced around. Anyone with experience in fundraising? Give me a call, would love some help with this one.

Catriona is working on the new website, will take some time, but we need photos! Please send them to me by email or if they are large files use the link below to upload to our dropbox.

There is room on the Board for more members. Interested? Contact any officer or board member and we can fill you in.

I’m not telling you it is going to be easy, I’m telling you it’s going to be worth it.
