Notes from the Board (June) **NEW**

The season has finally begun. Whether you are an Eventer or a Dressage Rider there is plenty of things to do. CDCTA has now had a Centered Riding Clinic, a Dressage Symposium and the first in our Series of Schooling shows. The Westbrook Show. Next is the MVHC show. Send in entries ASAP for that show, we usually have a waiting list, and I’m, sure you would rather be entered than wait listed. All have been quite successful and very well attended. We have had some members step forward and join the board in an effort to continue things forward. Thank you to Kathleen Ross for joining the board. Kathleen will be running for Treasurer when Linda Lambert retires from that position in December. We still are in dire need of a VP and a President. Without the President position being filled we cannot continue as a club. I know that there is either a past board member of CDCTA of possibly a member who is a past member of another organization who will step forward.

Thanks for being a member
