If you didn’t make April’s meeting, you missed a great movie. Not only was it very entertaining and sometimes funny, but it offered a lot of valuable information about the BLM and the wild mustangs.
The movie was preceded by a short meeting. Audra announced our financial status and that taxes and the Jack Brook 2018 fee was yet to be paid. Ron Lowery brought up the idea of a SMHA teen scholarship program which we agreed would be reviewed and considered. If you recall, we had received a $100 donation from the Jacksons which was ear-marked for a youth program. The club decided to donate these funds to Lon Davis for the Teri Patane Horse Foundation Camp for Kids. We presented the $100 check to Lon at the meeting. Thanks again Barbara and Jerry Jackson for making this possible!
We also briefly discussed our upcoming Playday, Poker Ride and the 4th of July parade. Help is needed with all these events. We especially need someone (or 2 or 3) to step up to head the parade group this year. We want to put on a good show and defend our 2016 title of Best Overall Equestrian Group. We need help to do that.
Thanks to a suggestion from Laurie Salaiz, our upcoming May 12th meeting will feature Dr. Ann Wimmer with a hands- on demo of chiropractic and acupuncture methods. If you know Dr. Ann, you know this will be both informational and entertaining! Let’s show her our support and gratitude by attending this demo. Don’t miss it! We will also be featuring a Taco Bar in honor of the month of May and Cinco de Mayo. A small $5 donation gets a taco meal with all the trimmings! Please RSVP to Kathy McBride so we can make sure to have enough for everyone. Also, please arrive by 7pm so we can get our food and be ready for Dr Ann’s demo promptly at 7:15pm.
Hope this Eventer reaches you in time to serve as a reminder to come to the May 6th Playday. The Bloomquist arena is an awesome venue with all the amenities and lots of room for parking. This is a very fun event for both horse and rider. Hope to see you all there. Bring a friend!!
